Twenty-eight organic insecticides were tested against Japanese beetle adults, Popillia japonica Newm. Different deposit Rates on glass surfaces were aged for up to 35 days. The effective ness of these deposits was evaluated against Japanese beetle adults during the aging period. Of the materials tested, Guthion and Sevin (N-methyl-1-naphthyl carbamate) proved to be the most effective both in toxicity and length of residual life. Phosdrin and RE-4355 [O,O-Dimethyl-O-(1,2-dibromo-2,2 dichloro-ethyl) phosphate] were the most rapid in action.
