The application of liquid concentrates containing DibromĀ® (1,2-dibromo-2,2-diehloroethyl dimethyl phosphate) to heating pipes in greenhouses resulted in good control of greenhouse white fly (Trialeurodes raporariorum (Westwood)), potato aphid (Maerosiphum enphorbiae (Thomas)), two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus telarius (L.)), and other pests on bearing tomatoes. Good control or green peach aphid (Myzus persicae (Sulzer)) on several types of vegetable and annual flowering plants was also obtained. Mushroom mite (Tyrophayus putrescentiae (Schrank)) was not satisfactorily controlled by Dibrom vapor treatments. Dibrom vapor treatments killed insects and mites in all parts of the greenhouse with no lingering residue problems.
