Resumen


The study of insects is of great relevance in areas of scientific knowledge; its study usually occurs in the forensic field and in experimental studies which are not abundant. With the purpose of describing decomposition characteristics and the entomological process that are presented in  samples of pork, we registered one sample in a controlled environment and other in an exposed way, using the observation technique as well as measures such as volume and weight, indicators such as coloration and dehydration and the entomological process. The experiment lasted nine days; five observations were made; differences were identified in the reduction of measures, coloration and dehydration, as well as in the presence of insects between both samples. This allows to establish that, under certain conditions, in this case mainly climatic, important differences will be caused in these processes.

Keywords: insects, decomposition, entomology, sample.
