Application of insecticide is the most common method to reduce the housefly population. However, in general, not all individual received lethal dose of insecticide. This condition could produce a favorable biological responses, such as increasing the reproductive ability, known as hormesis. This study was carried out to observe the effect of application of sublethal concentrations (LC50) or dosage (LD50) of imidacloprid and permethrin to reproductive ability of resistant strains of house fly…

Insect Epigenetic Mechanisms Facing Anthropogenic-Derived Contamination, an Overview

It is suggested that pesticide chemical behavior promotes both lethal and sublethal exposure of both target and non-target insects, and may lead to biodiversity decline and further biotic homogenization.

The Role of Heavy Metals in Plant Response to Biotic Stress

The present review discusses the impact of heavy metals on the growth of plants at different concentrations, paying particular attention to the hormesis effect, and issues relating to metal ion acquisition and ion homeostasis that may be essential for the survival of plants, pathogens and herbivores competing in the same environment.



Lethal and Sublethal Effects of Thyme Oil (Thymus vulgaris L.) on the House Fly (Musca domestica Lin.)

The application of sublethal doses to the adults of the housefly has significantly decreased the longevity of both sexes and the most significant mortality was seen with larvae which emerged from eggs which were laid by the treated female flies.

Green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (Hemiptera: Aphididae), reproduction during exposure to sublethal concentrations of imidacloprid and azadirachtin.

These laboratory experiments suggest that exposure to sublethal concentrations of imidacloprid and azadirachtin could stimulate reproduction in Green peach aphid, M. persicae.

Effect of Insecticide Resistance on Development, Longevity and Reproduction of Field or Laboratory Selected Aedes aegypti Populations

The results suggest that mechanisms selected for organophosphate and pyrethroid resistance caused the accumulation of alleles with negative effects on different life-traits and corroborate the hypothesis that insecticide resistance is associated with a high fitness cost.

Susceptibility to thiamethoxam of Musca domestica from Danish livestock farms.

The cross-resistance between thiamethoxam and imidacloprid indicates a coincidence of mechanism of the toxicity and resistance in the field populations and is explained by other parameters than the toxicities of spinosad, dimethoate, methomyl, bioresmethrin or azamethiphos.

Cultivar and Insecticide Applications Affect the Physiological Development of the Brown Planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål) (Hemiptera: Delphacidae)

It is shown that plant and insecticide influences on physiological ecology of this planthopper will influence its population dynamics under commercial production of rice in Asia.

Susceptibility of Spinosad in Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) Field Populations

The toxicity of spinosad was determined in one susceptible and five insecticide-resistant laboratory strains of house fly, Musca domestica L. domestica, and evaluated against 31 field populations of house flies collected from livestock farms across Denmark, indicating that in house fly cross-resistance to the major insecticide classes will not initially be of major concern for the use ofspinosad for house fly control.

Strategies of Insecticide Use to Avoid Resurgence of Nilaparvata lugens (Homoptera: Delphacidae) in Tropical Rice: A Simulation Analysis

A simulation model of the population dynamics of Nilaparvata lugens (Stal), the brown planthopper, in tropical rice has been used to investigate risk of resurgence due to the application of
