Three small-plot experiments were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of Thiodan® (6,7,8,9,10,10-hexachloro-1,5,5a,6,9,9ahexahydro-6,9-methano-2,4,3-benzodioxathiepin-3-oxide) in the control of cotton fleahopper (Psallus seriatus (Reut.)), bollworm (Heliothis zea (Boddie)), cabbage looper (Trichoplusia ni (Hbn.)) and boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis Boh.) Dust formulations were used for the first and third experiments; sprays for the second. Thiodan 3% and 4% dust as well as sprays containing 0.52 and 0.32 kilograms of technical Thiodan per hectare gave good results compared with other commonly used insecticides.
