Among the flies of medical and sanitary interest stand out necrophagous the flies. Their occurrence, distribution and prevalence in metropolitan areas are factors of great importance in public health, because the adults are vectors of pathogens to humans and their larvae attack both man and domestic animals. The work will aim to verify the occurrence of major species of flies necrophagous in three different areas (urban, rural and forestry) in the municipality of Rio Claro-SP and to determine the rate of synanthropic species found. For both, will be distributed to 3 traps baited with sardines or beef ground in three places of collections for 5 days, twice in each season. The insects and those attracted to bait the trap emerged in the laboratory will be sedated with ether and identified to the species level. (AU)
