Inheritance of DDT-resistance in a European strain of Blattella germanica (L.)

Inheritance of DDT-resistance in a European strain of Blattella germanica (L.)

Bulletin of the World Health Organization 27: 257-261

An account is given of genetical studies in Virginia on the mechanism of inheritance of DDT-resistance in Blatiella germanica (L.). The cockroaches used belonged to a resistant European strain (Landstuhl) derived from a strain collected in the field, maintained without selection pressure for several generations and exposed intermittently to DDT after arrival in the United States in January 1961.
