Some effects of permethrin on the behavior of Drosophila melanogaster Meigen (Diptera: Drosophilidae)



Some effects of permethrin on the behavior of Drosophila melanogaster Meigen (Diptera: Drosophilidae)



Canadian Entomologist, 1185: 481-486



Adult males of 4 strains of Drosophila melanogaster exhibited concentration-dependent avoidance of permethrin in the laboratory, at levels as low as 1 p.p.m. Avoidance was not dependent on the flies acquiring a lethal dose. Some correlation appeared to exist between higher locomotor activity and lower sensitivity to permethrin; the most sensitive strain had the lowest activity. Two of the 4 strains tested were chosen as permethrin-sensitive mutants following mutagenesis.
