Stomoxys calcitrans has spread throughout the world and can be found anywhere food and weather conditions are desired. This is the first report of fly biting in Iran caused by Stomoxys calcitrans in Ravand, West of Kashan, central of Iran. Based on our survey, traditional home aviary in the garden courtyard was the development and breeding place of these flies. These flies can painfuly bit during the day. The larvaes and pupa were removed from birdhouse floor and transported to Entomology laboratory of Environmental Health Group, Kashan University of Medical Sciences. Laboratory tests determined that larvaes and pupa belonged to Stomoxys calcitrans species. By using insecticide spraying in the aviary floor by Sevin, bitings were stopped. The present study was the first report on the stable fly bites in Iran. Consumption remaining of vegetables as food in aviary house would attract reproduction of the Stomoxys calcitrans flies.
