Two DDT-resistant strains of Carpocapsa pomonella (L.) metabolized DDT to DDE (1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis (Pchlorophenyl) ethylene), but the rate of detoxification is considered insufficient to constitute the resistance mechanism. The metabolism of DDE and TDE also was investigated. Penetration of DDT into live and dead moths of 1 strain was similar and followed 1st-order kinetics while penetration in the 2nd strain was biphasic.
