Resistance of the housefly (Musca domestica L.) to insecticides in Egypt



Resistance of the housefly (Musca domestica L.) to insecticides in Egypt



Bulletin of the World Health Organization 36(6): 937-948



DDT was used against Musca domestica L. in Egypt from about 1946 to 1949, when resistance to the compound developed. A mixture of DDT and gamma BHC (lindane) was then used for about 15 years. Supplementary treatments with malathion and trichlorphon were begun in Alexandria in 1963, and dichlorvos was found to be quite effective when tested in 1964.
