Abstract:Ethylene dibromide and 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropanc were ineffective in controlling the garden symphylid, Scutigerella immaculata (Newport), when applied to established crops. When tested under controlled conditions, methyl bromide was found to be the most effective fumigant. Of the fumigants that could be applied with a chisel-type applicator, 1,3-dichloropropene was the most. effective ingredient. Chloropicrin, Vapam® (sodium methyldithiocarbamate) ethylene dibromide, 1,2-dibromo-3- chloropropane, and 1,2-dichloropropane were ineffective against symphylids when tested under controlled conditions. In controlled experiments conducted under field conditions, 10 gallons of 1,3-dichloropropene gave satisfactory control in light soils.
