Abstract:Unpainted plywood panels treated with 0.1% abamectin (avermectin B,) provided >90% control of house flies, Musca domestica L., susceptible to insecticides for 4 wk and >70% control for 7 wk compared with 46-92% control observed with permethrin at the same time and rate of application. Efficacy of abamectin on whitewashed panels was similar to that observed on unpainted panels, whereas permethrin was ineffective on whitewashed panels at all rates tested (range, 0.001-0.1%) at all intervals after treatment. Bioassays of newly colonized house flies resistant to permethrin indicated that wild populations may be cross-resistant to abamectin.
