Efficacy of different insecticides as baits against grown up larvae of the red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta albistriga (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae)



Efficacy of different insecticides as baits against grown up larvae of the red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta albistriga (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae)



Entomon 29(1): 97-100



A field trial was conducted in farmers' fields in Andhra Pradesh, India for two years (2000 and 2001) to test the efficacy of some commonly used insecticides as baits to later instars of red hairy caterpillar (A. albistriga). The insecticides used were monocrotophos, chlorpyrifos, quinalphos, methomyl, thiodicarb and carbaryl. Chlorpyrifos was found to be superior in recording the highest larval mortality. Monocrotophos, methomyl and quinalphos were also effective.
