A resistance of head lice (Pediculus capitis) to permethrin in Czech Republic.
An outbreak of pediculosis at primary schools was recorded in the Czech Republic in 1992. Almost 20% of children in some schools were infested. This outbreak can be attributed to the resistance ofExpand
[Pediatric head lice: taxonomy, incidence, resistance, delousing].
Based on the current knowledge, head louse (Pediculus capitis) and body louse (Pediculus humanus) are two different species that infest specific parts of the human body and do not interbreed in vivo.Expand
Management of a German cockroach population with a juvenoid bait formulation: an experiment in residential buildings
Baits including 0.1% of ethyl 2‐(4‐((1,4‐dioxaspiro [4.5]dec‐6‐yl) methyl) phenoxy) ethylcarbamate were applied in two buildings containing 46 apartments with various degrees of infestation of theExpand
[West Nile virus transmission risk in the Czech Republic].
West Nile Virus (WNV) belongs to the family Flaviviridae. It is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes, capable of sucking blood on birds and mammals, most often by mosquitoes of the genus Culex. InExpand
Glutathione-dependent degradation of parathion and its significance for resistance in the housefly
Abstract Glutathione-dependent degradation of parathion was studied in six strains of houseflies to find out whether it might be important as a cause of resistance. When supernatant fractions ofExpand
Susceptibility to DDT and some other insecticides of head lice (Pediculus capitis De Geer) in Czechoslovakia.
For testing the susceptibility of the head louse to insecticides impregnated bunches of polyamide fibres, whose diameter resembled that of human hair (0.1 mm) were used. In this manner a lowExpand
GENETIC ANALYSIS OF RESISTANCE TO DDT, METHOXYCHLOR AND FENITROTHION IN TWO STRAINS OF HOUSEFLY (MUSCA DOMESTICA)
Genetic analysis of the factors causing resistance was carried out in strain H captured in Czechoslovakia in 1961 and in the more resistant strain HS obtained as a result of laboratory selection ofExpand
