Abstract:

Susceptibility levels for Egyptian and Sudanese strains of Phlebotomus papatasi were determined through the use of the W.H.O. Standard Test Kit for Adult Sandflies. Mean LC30 values for DDT ranged from 0.80-1.93 and for dieldrin from 0.63-1.0. Laboratory-colony sandflies were found to be slightly more tolerant to both insecticides than were wild-caught specimens, possibly a manifestation of vigor tolerance.
