The present study is a survey to identify the dipterous flies associated with human and animal diseases in the two wholesale markets: Al-Obour and 6th October. The results indicated that 20824 flies belonging to 9 families, 24 genera and 31 species where trapped during the period of investigation (January-December, 2003). Musca domestica were the most abundant species in the two markets. Statistical analysis showed that species of the families: Calliphoridae, Milichiidae, Muscidae, Piophilidae, Otitidae, Sarcophagidae and Sphaeroceridae were significantly higher in Al-Obour than 6th October, due to spread of garbage and decaying fish.
