Abstract The chemosterilant metepa, administered orally and topically to adult M. domestica, was found to reduce aliesterase activity, to reduce the hatch of eggs, and when administered orally it also prolonged the pre-ovipositional period. Orally administered DDT had little effect on aliesterase but did reduce egg viability. Selection of a strain of M. domestica with diazinon, in an attempt to increase its resistance to diazinon, had the unexpected result of the flies becoming more susceptible but concomitantly their level of aliesterase was significantly increased. The aliesterase level of the immature stages of M. domestica is reported.
