dc.description.abstractFiberglass strips and Acrylic yarn strings were treated with muscalure and permethrim and evaluated in the field as attractant-toxicant devices (ATDs) for control of the house fly, Musca Domestica. Control was not achieved, as it appears that the pheromone attracted more flies from the surrounding areas which could not effectively controlled by the toxicant application. ATDs were analyzed by gas chromatography for pheromone and toxicant longevity. Permethrin was shown to last throughout the entire test peroid whereas muscalure was essentially lost to the environment by the 15th day on the strips and the 21st day on the yarn ATDs.en_US
