Abstract:Adult Musca domestica L. treated topically at 3-hour intervals for a 24-hour period, did not exhibit a daily susceptibility rhythm to malathion, but flies reared under a 14:10 light: dark (LD) cycle or under continuous light were approximately 21% less susceptible to malathion than flies reared under LD 10:14. House flies reared under continuous red illumination did not exhibit mortality curves significantly different from those for flies reared without red light.
