Abstract: The effect of 1, 5, 10 and 50 ppm concentrations (calculated for active substance) of Dimilin©WP-25 (diflubensuron) on the eggs, one-, two- and three-days-old larvae, and mature pupae of Musca osiris Wiedemann, 1830 was studied in laboratory experiments. Eighty-one to 100% of the eggs failed to reach pupation. Parallel to the increase of exposure time and drug concentration the effect became more pronounced. The majority of the developed pupae were of lighter colour and showed deformations; from such pupae normal imagoes failed to emerge. Only 1 to 22% of the larvae of different age died in the Dimilin-containing faeces. At the same time, the mortality of pupae reached 68 to 100%. Older (3-days-old) larvae were less susceptible. The compound was ineffective against the pupae.
