Susceptibility of Hydrotaea aenescens (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Muscidae) to selected insecticides and its importance in integrated fly management



Susceptibility of Hydrotaea aenescens (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Muscidae) to selected insecticides and its importance in integrated fly management



Parasitology Research 82(2): 170-173



The LD50 values obtained for adults of a strain of H. aenescens (originating from a caged layer farm near Budapest, Hungary, in 1989) revealed higher sensitivity to 16 insecticides (DDT, methoxychlor, lindane, malathion, trichlorfon, propetamphos, dioxacarb, propoxur, methomyl, pyrethrum [pyrethrins], bioresmethrin, permethrin, cypermethrin, Chinmix [ beta -cypermethrin], deltamethrin and ivermectin) than those recorded for the susceptible WHO/SRS strain of the housefly (Musca domestica). Because H. aenescens adults are about half the size of the housefly, the chemical compounds used for adult fly control may jeopardize the survival of Hydrotaea populations released in animal confinement houses (for biological control of housefly populations). An efficient and economical combined application of biological and chemical control methods is possible only if the local management conditions and the dissimilar behaviour of the adults of the 2 species are taken into consideration during the use of insecticides.
