Diflubenzuron and some new insecticides for the groundnut red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta albistriga Walker



Diflubenzuron and some new insecticides for the groundnut red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta albistriga Walker



Behavioural and physiological approaches in pest management: 175-178



The effectiveness of the insect growth regulator diflubenzuron and 7 other insecticides for the control of larvae of the groundnut pest Amsacta albistriga was determined in tests in India. In the laboratory, LC50s of diflubenzuron 48 and 60 h after larvae in different instars had fed on treated leaves showed that older larvae were less susceptible than young ones and that efficacy was higher at 60 h than at 48 h.
