Abstract:Dichlorvos vapors from a concentrated solution vaporized on steam pipes and from impregnated resin strands gave excellent control of the greenhouse whitefly, Trialeurodes vaporairum (westwood); the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (Sulzer); the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphom pisum (Harris); the corn leaf aphid, Rhopnlosiphum maidis (Fitch); and the two-spotted spider mite, Tetrany chus telarius (L.), in greenhouse and fumigation chambertests.
One fluid ounce of 90% concentrated liquid or 100% linear feet of 20% resin strand per 10,000 ft3 were the lowest rates tested which gave 100% control.
