Abstract: The first nationwide survey was carried out to get data on susceptibility to the insect growth regulators cyromazine and diflubenzuron in house fly populations collected on 16 animal farms. As regards cyromazine, the R/S values were 0.95-2.50 at LC50- and 0.61-2.20 at LC95. The indices for diflubenzuron range from 0.20 to 1.53 at LC50 and from 0.35 to 1.40 at LC95. The results indicate that all strains were sensitive to both compounds. Although the flies tested showed moderate to high resistance to several organochlorine, organophosphorous, carbamate and pyrethroid chemicals, a lack of cross-resistance was found between the two larvicides and the conventional insecticides.
