Abstract:The results of preliminary evaluations of 107 synthetic compounds when applied as space sprays to the house fly,Musca domestica L., are reported. Eleven compounds, all but one esters of dl-cis-tran-chrysanthemumic acid, phosphoric acid, or a substituted phosphoric acid, were sufficiently toxic to warrant further study.
