Response of Heliothis populations to insecticides applied in an area-wide reproduction diapause boll weevil suppression program



Response of Heliothis populations to insecticides applied in an area-wide reproduction diapause boll weevil suppression program



Journal of Economic Entomology, 711: 87-92



In field tests in Texas in 1967-69, treatment of cotton with malathion and azinphos-methyl during autumn to reduce prehibernating populations of Anthonomus grandis Boh. resulted in an immediate increase in populations of the non-target pests Heliothis zea (Boddie) and H. virescens (F.). At peak densities, Heliothis populations were 4-12 times larger in treated field than in untreated fields and were often at even higher levels in fields treated with azinphos-methyl.
