A triazine pesticide, 2-cyclopropylamino-4, 6-diamino-s-triazine was found equally effective at low concentrations against first instar larvae of susceptible and organophosphorus resistant strains of the sheep flowfly, Lucilia cuprina. Exposure to 1 ppm of the chemical in sheep's liver medium for 48 hours should be effective for use in surveillance testing of field populations.
