The work of pupation site preference by prepupae of blow and flesh flies was carried out by Yasin, 2004; Akbar, 2005 and Arshad, 2005.
Leaves were the most preferred materials for pupation because moisture plays a very prominent role in keeping the prepupae out of heat, but Yasin (2004) found that soil was the most preferred pupation site.
In the current study, in both the batches larvae liked to find the pupation site near or into the food sources.
