Abstract/Contents:The purpose of this paper is to report the results of a 1988 test of the efficacy of certain insecticides for control of southern chinch bug in St. Augustinegrass turf. The insects were placed randomly, one group per plot, and allowed 24 hours pretreatment to distribute themselves naturally in the turf. Before and immediately after treatment, each field cage was covered by a nylon mesh which permitted air exchange and passage of light, but which prevented insect escape. Highest levels of control were produced by ethoprop 10G and 5G, and by isazophos 4E. Lower rates of ethoprop 5G and isazophos 4E produced moderate levels of control. Chlorpyrifos 1.1G yielded poor control in this experiment.
