Chemical control of the lesser meal worm, Alphitobius diaperinus (Panz.) (Coleoptera : Tenebrionidae)



Chemical control of the lesser meal worm, Alphitobius diaperinus (Panz.) (Coleoptera : Tenebrionidae)



J. Ga ent. Soc, Athens, Ga 2(1): 1-8



Since Alphitobius diaperinus (Panz.) has been found able to induce leucosis in fowls in the United States, various insecticides were tested for its control in Georgia by treatment of soil surfaces and subsequent exposure of adult beetles. The main criterion for effectiveness was 90-100% kill within three days. Fenchlorphos (ronnel) at 0.5-1.5 Ib, dimethoate at 1.0 Ib and carbaryl at 1-1.5 Ib per 1, 000 ft2 were satisfactory, with carbaryl persisting for the longest time.
