During the course of routine testing. of insecticides against locusts, DDT (dichlor diphenyl trichloroethane) and 666 (1,2,3,4,5, 6, - hexachlor-cyclohexane) were used in small scale laboratory experiments against the brown locust [Locustana pardalina (Walker)] and the migratory locust (Locusta migratoria migratorioides R. & F.). In view of the wide attention that these two insecticides have received of late, it was considered advisable to publish these preliminary results.
