Efficacy and persistence of chlorpyrifos chlorpyrifos methyl and lindane for preventive and remedial control of the southern pine beetle dendroctonus frontalis



Efficacy and persistence of chlorpyrifos chlorpyrifos methyl and lindane for preventive and remedial control of the southern pine beetle dendroctonus frontalis



Journal of Economic Entomology 73(5): 639-641



Field tests with selected insecticides for preventive and remedial control of D. frontalis Zimmermann were conducted in 1975 and 1976. In preventive control tests, 1 and 2% chlorpyrifos (Dursban formulation) 1 and 2% chlorpyrifos-methyl (Reldan formulation) compared favorably with 0.5% lindane at 2 and 4 mo. posttreatment. At later intervals, lindane was more effective than either chlorpyrifos or chlorpyrifos-methyl. The persistence of lindane, chlorpyrifos and chlorpyrifos-methyl was compared to efficacy data from the preventive control studies. Results indicate that lindane dissipated from bark more rapidly than either chlorpyrifos or chlorpyrifos-methyl. As a remedial control agent, 1 and 2% chlorpyrifos compared favorably with 0.5% lindane. Selected extender-sticker adjuvants were only slightly effective in improving the persistence of chlorpyrifos and lindane on bark.
