Field tests of the susceptibility level of the housefly, Musca domestica, to five synthetic insecticides in Allahabad, India

Field tests of the susceptibility level of the housefly, Musca domestica, to five synthetic insecticides in Allahabad, India

Japanese Journal of Sanitary Zoology 45(Suppl. ): 291-297

A field test to ascertain susceptibility level of the house fly Musca domestica Linnacus, to five kinds of insecticides viz, malathion, fenitrothion, propoxor, fenothrin and permethrin, was carried out on four wild colonies collected from Allahabad, India. Impregnated filter paper method, short time contact method and residual effect test were adopted. The results of experiments reveal that the Indian houseflies are more susceptible to malathion than Takatsuki strain, but susceptibility levels for the other four insecticides were approximately the same in the two strains. Susceptibility level of Musca domestica and M. sorbens Wiedemann to fenothrin and permethrin was tested. Their susceptibility level was nearly the same results.
