Field tesls were conducted to evaluate Nonachlor (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,8-nonachloro-3a,4,7,7a-tetrahydro -4,7 - methanoindan) as a residual insecticide in the soil and as a toxicant in the corncob grits-soybean oil bait for control of the imported fire and solenopsis saeuissima richleri Fore1. Two field tests with 0.147 and 0.3% Nonachlor bait at 10 pounds per acre gave less control than 10 pounds per acre of 0.075% mirex bait. However, these tests indicate some potential for Nonachlor as a bait toxicant. In residual studies, ¼ pound per acre of Nonachlor consistently gave control equal or slight]y superior to a comparable dosage of heptachlor. Dosages of 1 and 2 pounds of Nonachlor per acre provided 99 to 100% control of the imported fire ant through 1 year.
