Laboratory and field evaluation of 4 aminopyridine avitrol as a bird repellent in bangladesh



Laboratory and field evaluation of 4 aminopyridine avitrol as a bird repellent in bangladesh



Bangladesh Journal of Agriculture 11(4): 49-54



The acute oral LD50 of 4-aminopyridine and the effective dose to elicit distress alarm calls were established in the laboratory on rose-ringed parakeets (Psittacula krameri), a major pest bird of maize and sunflower in Bangladesh. The LD50 was found to be 3.0 mg/Kg and the effective dose was 10.0 mg/Kg. At this dose parakeets gave distress calls in an average of 15 min after dosing. Spraying of ears at milk stage in the field with 2% and 4% 4-Aminopyridine solution just once before harvest caused 66 to 93% reduction in damage to maize ears at harvest when compared to that of the nearby untreated plots. Even though 4-aminopyridine is expensive, the amount required per maize ear is inexpensive and development of techniques to utilize this material in the field appear worthwhile.
