The newly emerged adult male and female Schizodactylus monstrosus D. were treated with an insecticide, pyrethrum or with petroleum ether in the case of controls. At selected intervals of 6 h, 12 h and 18 h after treatment, the brain and ventral nerve cord and ganglia were homogenized to estimate the activity of acetyl-cholinesterase, and acid and alkaline phosphatase. The resultant activities of these three enzymes showed that: acetylcholinesterase decreased rapidly, and acid and alkaline phosphatase increased significantly after pyrethrum treatment in both brain and ventral nerve cord with ganglia compared with the controls. The activities of alkaline phosphatase showed a marked fluctuation at different post-treatment periods in both the tissues. The results have been discussed in relation to the impact caused by the treated insecticide and its metabolism.
