Rik... I thought that would catch your attention. I know that in college bio labs Drosophila are regularly anesthetized by several methods, and one of the most common is CO2. I have a CO2 "duster" that is normally used to blow dust off of optics and equipment. Well, it will anesthesize Tabanus as well. It was either that or take a ride home with me and get permanently mounted under a microscope... otherwise there's no way to get the needed 15 to 30 frames. So a CO2 hangover is probably preferable to the fly.
