Abstract:Control of poultry lice by spraying the bird, dusting the litter, and feeding has been attempted with several new insecticides. Sprays of dimethoate, and Hercules 426 (5-dichloromethyl-1,2,3, 4,7,7-hexachlorobicyelo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene) gave mortalities similar to the malathion standard at 0.0.5%. Dibrom® (1,2-dibromo- 2,2-dichloroethyl dimethyl phosphate) was outstanding in providing 100% mortality at 0.025%. Sevin® (1-napthyl N-methylcarbamate) and Co-Ral® (O-(3 chloro-4-methyllllnbelliferone) O,O-diethyl phosphorothioate) in 5% dusts were effective at one-half pound to 40 square feet under controlled conditions but were erratic under variable farm conditions. Orally administered toxicants were generally ineffective.
