During 1978-1979 4 insecticides were tested against C. ombrodelta (Lower) on macadamia [Macademia integrifolia] at Nambour [Australia]. Mean numbers of unmarketable nuts per tree were 10.5, 12.4, 19.5, 35.6 and 293.0 for 0.005% permethrin, 0.05% methidathion, 0.075% acephate, 0.05% omethoate and control treatments, respectively. All insecticides significantly reduced losses; permethrin and methidathion were significantly more effective than omethoate. Permethrin gave the longest protection.
