A toxicological survey of 74 Australian field populations of Lucilia cuprina was used to describe the range of responses of first-instar larvae to ivermectin in an in-vitro bioassay. All populations were susceptible with only a 4-fold difference between the least and most tolerant populations at the LC50 level. The frequency distribution of LC50s was normally distributed around the mean of 9.8 μg/L. The data recorded will provide a susceptible baseline for resistance monitoring when ivermectin is again released for the control of flystrike on sheep.
