Abstract:Larvae of Chrysops flavida var. reicherti Fairchild were introduced into solutions or emulsions of several insecticides and held at :23.5. for mortality observations. Parathion was the most effective material, causing 100% mortality at 5 p.p.m. Lindane was the outstanding chlorinated hydrocarbon, providing 95% kill at 10 p.p.m.
