Abstract: The insecticide resistance of 18 local Musca domestica populations was surveyed in Hungary between 1983 and 1985. Three to five days old female imagos hatched from larvae and pupae collected on 18 animal farms were examined by topical application of insecticides, and the results were evaluated by probit analysis (the WHO/SRS housefly was used as sensitive strain). None of the 17 populations tested for resistance to DDT had normal susceptibility (resistance indices) calculated from the LD50 values were 180, 250-500, 500-1000, or above 1000 for 1, 5, 5 and 6 populations, respectively. Resistance to HCH was found to be rather low (RIs: only on one population did RI exceed 10, in 3 populations it was between 5 and 10, and for the remaining 10 populations below 5). The LD50 and LD90 values of the sensitive WHO/SRS strain for DDT were much higher than suggested by hitherto published data.
