A preliminary efficacy study of mocap for the control of Castnia dedalus Cramer in coconut (Cocos nucifera L.)

A preliminary efficacy study of mocap for the control of Castnia dedalus Cramer in coconut (Cocos nucifera L.)

Surinaamse Landbouw 1992; 37(1-4): 9-13

Mocap 10 G (15, 20 or 25 g/palm) was screened for control of Castnia dedalus (Eupalamides cyparissias) in dwarf coconut palms in 1986 in Suriname. After application of 15 g of the insecticide to the crown of the palms, 86% of the larvae collected over a 3-week period were dead, whereas on control palms none of the larvae found were dead.
