Abstract:A convenient method of measuring the susceptibility of adults of Hippelates pusio Loew to residual insecticides was developed. With this technique hourly 50% knockdown and kill concentrations for DDT, malathion, dieldrin and lindane were estimated for a Cuban population of H. pusio.
Lindane was the most promising of the insecticides tested be- cause of its rapid action in low concentrations. Dieldrin and malathion were slower. DDT was ineffective for the population tested and may be generally ineffective against Hippelates.
