Abstract:Strains of cabbage maggot (Hylemya brassicae (Boucle)) highly resistant to chlorinated hydrocarbon and organic phosphate insecticides appeared in certain areas of the Pacific Northwest. Thirty-three compounds were tested as granules or drenches applied at planting time with cruciferous crops. All were ineffective except Zinophos (O,O-diethyl O-2-pyrazinyl phosphorothioate) which gave outstanding control. LD-50 tests demonstrated that the adults were highly resistant to chlorinated hydrocarbons but still susceptible to organic phosphates. A drench of Zinophos or Guthion® ( O,O-dimethyl S.(4-oxo-1,2,3- benzotrazin-3-(4H)-ylmethyl) phosphorodithoate) applied to transplants of cauliflower or cabbage provided excellent control against cabbage maggot attacks.
