Abstract

Activities of a range of pyrethroidal esters, incorporating structural variations in all regions of the acid and alcohol components, have been measured against two fully characterised and homozygous resistant strains of Musca domestica (kdr and super-kdr). The results, limited in this paper to esters of alcohols with acyclic side chains, show the same level of uniform resistance as the kdr strain observed previously, across a range of acid and alcohol variations. Against the super-kdr strain, in contrast to the cyclic side chain set, resistance factors are barely higher than for the kdr strain. Against super-kdr flies, some dependence of resistance factor on the position of the side chain substituent was detected. Poly-fluorobenzyl esters confer particularly low resistance factors.
