Abstract:Toxicity tests were conducted at College Station, Texas during 1956 to determine the effect of several insecticides on eggs and larvae of the pink boll worm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saund.). Guthion and parathion were effective as ovicides when applied directly to eggs and when sprayed on infested plants. Significant reductions in pink boll worm larvae were obtained with all insecticide treatments compared with the check but Guthion and DDT were superior to the other materials.
