From 1958 through 1964, 24 compounds were tested in the field for control of the green peach aphid attacking burley tobacco in Kentucky. Because major aphid infestations on tobacco in Kentucky occur late in the growing season, it is often difficult to cover the plants thoroughly with insecticides when aphid control is needed. Single applications of the nonsystemic materials now recommended do not always give effective control. The systemic phosphate insecticides, dimethoate, phosphamidon, methyl demeton, and BidrinĀ® (3-hydroxy-N,N-dimethyl-cis-croton-amide dimethyl phosphate), give excellent control of the green peach aphid and appear particularly promising where good coverage is unobtainable.

The use of carbaryl, especially in repeated applications, can result in a noticeable increase in the numbers of aphids compared with the numbers found on untreated plants. Whether this increase is caused by the killing of aphid parasites and predators or by some physiological effect of carbaryl on the plant is not known.
