Several types of toxicity studies are reported with the following aims in mind: To determine the comparative toxici ies of trivalent and pentavalent arsenic to the apple maggot, Rhagoletis pomonella (Walsh), the cherry fruitfly, Rhagoletis cingulata (Loew), and the dark cherry fruitfly, Rhagoletis fausta (O. S.). This work follows closely the method of Pearson & Richardson (1933) using the housefly. Musca domestica L. To study the toxicity of some nicotine compounds and Reinecke salt, using the same individual feeding method as used in the first section.
