Abstract/Contents:The purpose of this research was to test the efficacy of several insecticides for the control of the southern chinch bug in St Augustinegrass. Insects were introduced into the plots on 1 September 1990 and allowed 1 day to distribute themselves naturally in the turf. Eleven chemical treatments were applied 2 September; control treatment plots were not treated. Data were collected 4-6 September 1990. All treatments except the Empire ME formulation produced levels of control that would be highly acceptable for practical control.
