The present report from Texas confirms the Mississippi findings of insecticide resistance inGambusia. In addition, we report evidence that urban, as well as agricultural, uses of insecticide may result in resistantGambusia populations. Further, we observed a resistance pattern that is distinctly different from that found in Mississippi.
