During this migration the larva spends a period in the submucosa of the esophagus. This stage is referred to as the esophageal first instar. The following study was conducted on cattle grubs of this stage. The larvae which were used in this study were dissected from beet gullets obtained from the John Morrell & Company Packing Plant.
