Investigation of the esterase systems of insects

, : Investigation of the esterase systems of insects. Agrokhimiya ( 10): 117-123

In tests involving 3 populations of the Colorado beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata), 2 from Russia with comparable susceptibility to insecticides were also alike in esterase activity. Details are given of the toxicity of some pyrethroids and chlorophos to the 3 populations and red cockroaches In larvae and adults of L. decemlineata, there were at least 3 zones with acetylcholinesterase activity, as demonstrated by electrophoresis.

The main problems involved are the ability to r...

The surface area of the compound eye was calculated for each individual by approximating the eye to a true ellipsoid. The maxi...
