Abstract:

Tests were conducted with Bedbugs, Cimex lectularius German cockroaches, Blatella germanica and American cockroaches, Periplaneta americana strains obtained in Izmir Turkey during 1966-67 to determine their resistance to various concentrations of diazinon, malathion and dieldrin. Results indicate that 0.5 diazinon should control bedbugs and 0.05 diazinon should control German cockroaches and 3.0 malathion should control American cockroaches. For combined German and American cockroach infestations we recommend 3.0 malathion in the absence of Americandiazinon data.
