The possibility of development of resistance to organic contact insecticides belonging to the group of chlororganic (DDT) and phospho-organic (phenitrotion and chlorophos) compounds was studied when flies were given sodium arsenate, inorganic intestinal poison. Addition of sodium arsenate in sublethal doses to the food of imago of two susceptible strains of Musca domestica L. in the course of 11 and 30 successive generations did not reduce the sensitivity of flies either to sodium arsenate or to phospho-organic insecticides. At the same time, in these experiments, a 200-fold increase of resistance to DDT was achieved with flies of both strains.
