Abstract/Contents:"Two experimental products (carbaryl 43 percent SL and carbaryl 20 percent F) and carbaryl 80 percent S (all at 4.48, 6.72, and 8.96 kg ai/ha), and chlorpyrifos 0.5G at 1.23 kg ai/ha were applied to caged field plots of St. Augustinegrass, Stenotaphrum secdatum (Walt.) Kuntze, turf to control southern chinch bugs, Blissus insularus Barber (Hemipters: Lygaeidae). All materials significantly reduced the population of treated insects; the most effective treatment was the high application rate of carbaryl 43 percent SL, which produced ca. 95 percent mortality. No treatment-related phytotoxicity was detected."
