Downwind drift and droplet distribution of naled aerial sprays applied for stable fly control over Gulf beaches



Downwind drift and droplet distribution of naled aerial sprays applied for stable fly control over Gulf beaches



Journal of the Florida Anti Mosquito Association 56(2): 86-90



Tests were conducted at Panama City Beach, Florida, to determine the deposition of naled on the land and water and its effectiveness for controlling stable flies after aerial spraying. The results showed that the sprays were carried for long distances downwind from the aircraft path, but the large spray droplets fell to the surface within 1200-1400 ft downwind of the upwind swath and produced detectable residue levels on the ground.
