Heliothis zea (Boddie) reared on 5 diets which altered their fatty acid composition were treated topically with methyl parathion, endrin, and carbaryl and the LD50of each insecticide was determined for the 5 groups of larvae. There was no difference in the LD50of methyl parathion among the groups of bollworms. There were differences in the LD,50. of endrin and carbaryl among the 5 groups, but these differences did not appear to be correlated with variations in their fatty acid composition.
