The resistance status to diazinon based organophosphorus insecticides has been examined in the sheep blowfly, Lucilia cuprina, a recent arrival to New Zealand. Samples, representative of the distribution of L. cuprina in New Zealand, were scored for the presence or absence of a microsomal esterase (E3) associated with resistance. Iso-female lines were generated from four sites to examine variation in resistance levels using toxicological data. Results from both techniques show resistance at a high frequency with some variation between sites.
