|Abstract:||A survey of fly occurrence and incidence of fly breeding in leeward Ko-
hala, Hawaii, was conducted between August and November, 2007. The survey areas included four state parks and 13 ranches near the coastline. This study found that the occurrence of two major species of flies, Tricharaea occidua (a flesh fly) and Musca sorbens (dog dung fly) within the complaint areas corresponded with the breeding of flies at the ranches nearby; and T. occidua was the principal inhabitant in cattle, horse, and mule dung at the ranches.
