    PopOOO you really have to be more precise in your questions; you do have it in the place, biology. You may have to wait a while before this answered because I think our biologists here are few and far between, sorry.

    Edit: I really don't enjoy oblique homework questions, pop.

    Well the best breeding grounds or conditions for Spalangia Cameroni would be in a rotting stable fly. Is your theroy on the use of parasite to control the fly population? Can you provide more information as to what exactly you are looking for? What year and what is your study?

    Pop, I regularly employ both of those species to control the stable flies on my horse farm. I buy them in a product called "fly predators" from Spalding Labs. They seem like they're very easy to grow and very forgiving of the conditions. When we order them, they arrive a few days later in a small sealed plastic bag. If I remember correctly, there's a piece of cardboard or something in the bag with them. It's probably slightly damp. Anyway, they're in the cocoon stage when they first arrive, but after a few days they begin to hatch. After we see 10-12 of them hatched inside the plastic bag, it's time to release them in the horse pastures and manure piles. They're quite effective at controlling the fly population.

    You can look at the instructions from Spalding Labs to get an idea the conditions to keep them in. They recommend temperatures around 80-85 Fahrenheit.

    Would you like me to send you a box of horse manure in the mail? ;)

    And I asked to try to Development of Spalangia Cameroni and Muscidifurax Raptor and then to see what is the effective of them on the flies.

    Pop, I misjudged you sorry. Anyone studying biology is okay with me. I had stables too, but never had the advantage of ordering anything to keep down flies but to be quite truthful, I didn't really have that much problem with them, and they broke down the manure so well.
