Abstract: The inequality $ ({\partial _t}u - \Delta u)(t,\,x)\qquad \leq \qquad u(t,\,x)(1 - u(t - \tau ,\,x))$ is investigated. It is shown that nonnegative solutions of the Dirichlet problem in a bounded interval remain bounded as time goes to infinity, whereas in a more dimensional domain, in general, this holds only if the delay is not too large.
