Abstract:Topical application of aldrin to adults of the carrot rust fly, Psila rosae (F.), from Thedford and Bradford, Ontario, and comparison of their respective LD50, values showed a resistance level of ×5600 in the Bradford strain. Spray tower tests on the Bradford strain showed that parathion, Bayer 25141 (O,O-diethyl O-p- (methylsulfinyl) phenyl phosphorothioate), and naled were the most toxic; lindane, DDT, and pyrethrum were the least toxic; and U.C. 21149 (2-methyl-2-(methylthio)propionaldehyde O-(methylcarbamoyl) oxime), malathion, diazinon, and Zectran® (4-dimethylamino-3,5-xylyl methylcarbamate) were intermediate in toxicity. Regression lines and supporting data are presented for each insecticide tested.
