In experiments conducted at Brownsville, Texas, in 1958, Sevin® (1-naphthyl N-methylcarbamate), a mixture of Guthion® (O,O-dimethyl S-( 4-oxo-1, 2,3-Benzotriazin-3-( 4H)-ylmethyl) phosphorodithioate) plus DDT, and a BBC-DDT mixture were highly effective against the pink bollworm (Pectinophora gosspyiella (Saunders). Bayer 29493 (O,O-dimethyl O-[4-methylthio-m-tolyl] phosphorothioate) and Bayer 25141 (O,O-diethyl O-(p-methylsulfinyl)phenyl phosphorothioate) were effective against the pink bollworm but not effective against the bollworm (Heliothis zea (Boddie)). General Chemicals 3707 (1,3-bis (methoxycarbonyl)-1-propen-2-yl dimethyl phosphate) and Monsanto CP-7769 (hexaethyl (ethylthiomethylidyne) triphosphonate) were not effective against either of these insects. Barthrin showed some promise for control of the pink bollworm but not the bollworm.
