  • Abstract:

    Details of chemotherapeutic and chemoprophylactic trials with systemic organic phosphorus compounds on specific oculo-vascular myiasis under field conditions are given. The results proved encouraging and showed that Dow-ET-57, Ruelene and Neguvon, in this order of efficacy, have definite larvicidal actions against the causal Gedoelstia larvae. The mortality as well as the incidence of blindness were reduced notably by all three insecticides.
