After a single spray of dieldrin at different concentrations, insects die over a period of about 5 weeks, mostly in the first 3 weeks. The concentration of dieldrin in the insects decreases before the decline in mortality. After chronic poisoning some of the population tolerated the poison (at various concentration levels) and stayed alive. This final stage was reached after several weeks. For comparison, tests were also conducted with lindane, parathion and dichlofenthion.
