Abstract:A study was conducted to investigate the persistence or re-establishment of some species of Thysanoptera in the vicinity of Sheldon, Iroquois County, Illinois, where mass applications of aldrin, heptachlor, and dieldrin were made on agricultural land to suppress an infestation of Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman.
In clover and alfalfa, re-establishment of thrips in areas where they had been exterminated by aldrin and heptachlor was rapid, and most populations returned to normal within the year of treatment. Thrips with hosts limited to native grasses recovered partially within 2 years after treatment with aldrin. However, in areas treated with dieldrin, recovery of some of the sod-dwelling thrips was not complete' 8 years after treatment.
