Abstract

The inheritance of resistance to chlordane in the German cockroach, Blattell germanica. (L.), was studied by determining the toxicity of chlordane to the following strains of roaches: a) chlordane-resistant and non-resistant strains, b)F1 and F2 progeny of reciprocal crosses between two parental strains, c) progeny of pair matings within resistant and non-resistant strains, and from a cross between resistant females and non-resistant males.
