Dimethoate, Di-Syston®(O,O-diethyl S-2-(ethylthio)ethyl phosphorodithioate) and phorate granules applied to the soil surface under azalea plants controlled two broods of azalea lace bugs (Stephanitis pyrioides Scott) with a single application. The initial control brought about by the use of these chemicals seems to he caused hy vapors. Ph orate did not give systemic control when worked into azalea beds. No phytotoxicity was observed from any treatment nor was there any deterrent to the rooting response of cuttings treated with demeton, Di-Syston or phorate.
