Larvae of Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders) from a wild culture were reared on a wheat-germ diet and held under constant temperature, humidity, and photoperiod during the development period. pupae were treated with 10,000 R of gamma radiation during a 2-hour exposure. Adults which emerged from irradiated and control pupae were treated topically with either DDT, carbonyl, or azinphosmethyl. When compared with control, moths from irradiated pupae showed a statistically significant increase in mortality from azinphosmethyl, a slight but nonsignificant decrease in mortality from carbaryl, and no difference in mortality from DDT. The increased toxicity of azinphosmethyl may possibly be due to a decreased production of the detoxifying enzymes.
