Toxic, Repellent and Attractant Properties of Some Insecticides Towards the Housefly (Musca domestica L.)

M. Khalequzzaman, Hosne Ara, Fatema Zohura and Jesmun Nahar    

Abstract: The LD50 of malathion, diazinon, dichlorvos, phosphamidon, lambda-cyhalothrin, cypermethrin, carbosulfan and propoxur on adult housefly were 2.9852, 0.1696, 0.2769, 0.3346, 0.0155, 0.0060, 0.0329 and 0.0137 µg/fly respectively. Dichlorvos, diazinon and cypermethrin showed the highest repellency and phosphamidon, malathion and propoxur showed the highest attractancy to both male and female houseflies. Propoxur and carbosulfan showed lower repellency. Lower doses always showed lower repellency and higher attractancy in all tested insecticides.
