Fipronil seed treatments for the control of chironomid larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in aerially-sown rice crops



Fipronil seed treatments for the control of chironomid larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in aerially-sown rice crops



Field Crops Research 57(2): 195-207



The phenyl pyrazole insecticide fipronil was bioassayed against final instar larvae of Chironomus tepperi Skuse, and found to be highly toxic (LC50 0.43 micro g litre-1, LC90 1.05 micro g litre-1) relative to conventional organophosphorus insecticides.
