Maggot therapy는 1900년대 초부터 압박성 욕창, 당뇨나 괴사에 의한 궤양, 수술 후 감염된 상처, 화상 등의 상처치료에 다시 사용되기 시작하였다. 환부에 처리할 적절한 발육단계의 무균유충을 생산하고, 증식ㆍ보존용 계통을 유지하는 데 필요한 자료를 얻기 위하여 온도별(15.4, 20.6, 22.5, 26.2, 29.1, 33.0℃) 발육실험을 수행하였다. 간배지(liver agar medium)에서 알기간과 1령 및 2령 기간은 33.0℃에서 각각 9.0시간, 14.0시간, 18.6시간으로 가장 짧았다. 3령 기간과 번데기 기간은 29.1℃에서 각각 285.0시간과 171.0시간으로 가장 짧았다. 온도별 발육기간을 기초로 각 발육단계의 발육영점온도와 유효적산온도를 산출하였다. 암수 성충은 대개 1개월 이상 생존하였고, 암컷은 일평생 2.7회 산란하였으며, 총 338.5개의 알을 낳았다.


Maggot therapy (MT) has been re-introduced for non-healing wounds such as pressure sore, diabetic and necrotic ulcers, as well as infected surgical wounds, burn, and trauma injuries since early 1990s. For the production of sterile maggot of proper developmental stage, Lucilia sericata were studied on developmental periods of immature stages on liver agar medium under six different temperatures such as 15.4, 20.6, 22.5, 26.2, 29.1, and 33.0℃, and adult longevity and egg production under 29℃. The periods of eggs and larvae of the 1st and the 2nd instars were shortest at 33℃ by 9.0, 14.0 and 18.6 hours, respectively. The periods of the 3rd instar larvae and pupae were shortest at 29.1℃ by 285.0 and 171.0 hours, respectively. Developmental zero point and total effective temperature for the development of each stage were calculated based on the developmental periods. Adults of both female and male lived more than one month. Females laid an average of 338.5 eggs through 2.7 times of egg laying throughout her lifetime.
