Potentiation of Malathion by Other Insecticides Against Adult Housefly

M. Zahidul Islam and M. Khalequzzaman    

Abstract: With a view to potentiate malathion by other insecticides, experiments were carried out with eight insecticides like, dichlorovos, pirimiphosmethyl, phenthoate, monocrotophos, diazinon, cypermethrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, and propoxur. All tests were done by the topical application of the insecticide mixtures on adult housefly, Musca domestica L. Toxicity of malathion was determined when applied alone and low dose of each insecticide was mixed with malathion in ratios of 1:1, 1:2, 1:5, 1:10 and 1:20. Separately. The mortality data after 24 hours of application showed that nearly all insecticides offered increased toxicity of malathion. But when it was applied jointly with lambda-cyhalothrin and cypermethrin the potentiation results were maximum.
