- The effect of insecticide concentration on the nerve impulses at the labellar receptors of the blowfly Lucilia cuprina Wied was tested and found to be significant for the DDT type of insecticide, but not for the DDT-pyrethroid type. The experiments were performed at three different times of the day, but time of day had no effect on the multiplicity indices calculated from nerve spikes induced by the compounds. No effects on the nerve response were elicited by the synergistic action of sesamex.
