Chemical control of chironomid larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in a polluted river in reference to the controlled area and the mortality of intoxicated larvae carried by the stream



Chemical control of chironomid larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in a polluted river in reference to the controlled area and the mortality of intoxicated larvae carried by the stream



Japanese Journal of Sanitary Zoology 29(2): 87-91



When temephos was used to treat the Zenpukuji River in Tokyo, Japan, for 60 min at 1 p.p.m. to control chironomid larvae, there was a reduction of 80% 500 m downstream on the seventh day after treatment, and a reduction of less than 70% 900 m downstream. There was a sharp increase in the number of first-instar larvae 10 days after the treatment.
