AbstractTwo groups of house flies were chosen to be compared with a laboratory group in their resistance to the insecticide (Azamethiphos) for a whole year period. Two ways of insecticide application were used, the first by spraying and the second by adding insecticide to drinking water. Results showed that resistance varied according to seasons and the house fly group collected from garbage was most resistance to the insecticide than the one collected from gardens and the group raised in the laboratory. Seasons also had significant effect on insect resistance, insects were more resistent in summer than in other seasons because of activity of insects and sutable invironment more over denaturation of insecticide by high heat in summer.
