Butonate, Monsanto CP 10502(1-(dimethoxyphosphinyl) vinyl dimethyl phosphate), phosphamidon, and Sevin® (1-naphthyl N-methlthlcarbaunale) administered as a single oral dose to rabbits were quite effective against the bed bug (Cimex lectularis L.) taking a blood meal, but were less effective against the Gulf Coast tick (Amblyomma maculatum Koch). Dimethoate and Shell SD 8562 (2-dimetbykarbamoyl-1-methylvinyl dimethyl phosphate) applied dermally to rabbits at 100 mg. per kg. were highly effective as systemics against the bed bug for 5 and 48 hours posttreatment, respectively; Bayer 29493 (O,O-dimethyl O-[4.(methylthio)-m-tolyl] phosphorothioate) was slightly less effective. As a contact insecticide, the residual effectiveness of Sevin was considerably longer than several other compounds tested.
