Abstract:Testes of adult male Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel), treated with N, N′-tetramethylenebis (l-aziridinecarboxamide) by immersion, topical application, or injection, were removed by dissection at 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 days posttreatment. The chemosterilant caused a progressive reduction in length of the testes as the flies aged.
