Abstract : The susceptibility of the bed bug, cimex hemiptelus fabricius, to certain synthetic contact insecticides, viz., DDT, lindane dieldrin, diazinon and malathion was investigated. The fifth nymphal stage of the insect was found to be more tolerant to insecticides than other nymphal instars or the adult bed bug.
