Abstract:Sodium flu silicate with nine parts of hydrated lime, by volume, gave good control in field trials against the Mexican bean beetle. Sodium flu silicate undiluted was effective in cage tests against the cotton boll weevil. .01 per cent of mustard gas (dichlorethysulfide) with a little ether adsorbed on charcoal was used successfully against the Mexican bean beetle under cages.
