Arsenates: Effect on Fecundity in Some Diptera.


Four species of adult Diptera, Rhagoletis pomonella (Walsh), Drosophila melanogaster Mg., Drosophila hydei Sturt., and Musca domestica L. showed varying degrees of reduced fecundity when sublethal doses of arsenic were included in their food. The possible influence of the frequent use of arsenicals on arthropod populations is discussed.
