One hundred and forty six cows of different ages (1-12 years) and which had not been treated against Hypoderma infection have been examined weekly for 8 months (January to August, 1993) to record the number hypodermic nodules and the appearance of LIII larvae. Nodules appeared on 55 animals in January, 15 in February, 4 in March, and 7 in April, for an overall 55.5 % on infected animals. The period of nodules ranged from 5, in a 3-year old cow to 49 in a 2 year-old heifer. In 1992, the grazing period lasted from April, 15th to October, 30th. The first eclosion was recorded on May 2, 1993 and nodules remained on 8 animals on August, the 2nd, date of the last examination. All the infections were due to Hypoderma bovis.
