Larvae of the flesh fly, Sarcophaga ruficornis were exposed to Heat and Cold shock stresses in the present study. One of the responses to stress is the internal tissue damage. Trypan blue dye exclusion method was used to analyze the tissue tolerance to heat shock and cold shock. There is a difference in tolerance level in nongut and gut tissues to these thermal stresses.
