Abstract

A method to determine the susceptibility of Mesocyclops aspericornis to insecticides is proposed. Tests were carried out by placing adults females in 100 ml of insecticide solution at 3 temperatures (20 degrees C, 25 degrees C, 30 degrees C). Mortality was scored 24 h after treatment. The results show a low variability of the insecticide effectiveness at these temperatures.
