Absorption of DDT, dieldrin, diazinon, parathion, and carbaryl in resistant (Rutgers and Fc) and susceptible (CSMA) strains of Musca domestica L. was studied in adult females, larvae, and puparia. Absorption of all insecticides (except DDT in the Fc strain) in adult flies of the resistant strains was slower than the susceptible strain. In larval and puparial stages no consistent trend of absorption related to resistance was found. Absorption in the CSMA strain was found to be highest in the adult and lowest in the puparial stages.
