Abstract: Methods for assaying AChE and non-specific esterase activity from Liposcelis spp. were outlined. Liposcelis bostrychophila AChE was less sensitive to inhibition than L. entomophila to malaoxon and DDVP. Non-specific esterases of L. bostrychophila were more susceptible to inhibition than those of L. entomophila. Totals of 10 and 14 esterase bands were detected on PAGE for L. bostrychophila and L. entomophila, respectively. The link between esterase sensitivity to inhibition and the differential insecticide tolerance between the two Liposcelis spp. is examined. © 1995.
