The Effect of DDT and BHC on the Population of the Lucerne Flea, Sminthurus viridis (L.) (Collembola), and its Control by predatory Mites, Biscirus spp. (Bdellidae)


The Effect of DDT and BHC on the Population of the Lucerne Flea, Sminthurus viridis (L.) (Collembola), and its Control by predatory Mites, Biscirus spp. (Bdellidae)



Aust. J. agric. Res, Melbourne 5(1): 148-155



An account is given of further tests in Western Australia on the effect of top-dressings of BHC and DDT in superphosphate on Smynthurus viridis (L.) in pastures, and also on their toxicity to the Bdellid mites that prey on it. The pastures selected consisted chiefly of subterranean clover and contained high populations of S. viridis. The Bdellids present were Biscirus australiens Wom., which was numerous, and B. symmctricus (Kramer), which was scarce.
