Abstract:Greenhouse and field cage tests were conducted to determine the effectiveness of selected systemic inscticides, Temik® (2 -methyl- 2 - (methylthio) propionaldehyde O-(methylcarbamoyl)oxime), Azodrin® (3-hydroxy-N-methyl-cis-crotonamide dimethyl phosphate), Stauffer B-10497 (O,O-dimethyl [ethyl(2-hydroxyproyl)thiocarbamoyl]phosphoramidothioate), Niagara NIA-10242 (2,3-dihydro-2,2- dimethyl-7-benzofuranyl methylcarbamate), and American Cyanamid CL-47031 (cyclic ethylene (diethoxyphosphinyl). dithioimidocarbonate) against the tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois). The insecticides were applied to cotton stems in a lanolin formulation and to the soil in which plants were grown in a granular formulation. Temik and Azodrin were more effective than the other insecticides. In field cage tests, Temik applied to the soil was slightly more effective than Temik or Azodrin applied to the stems. Temik reduced hatch of tarnished plant bug eggs when the insecticide was applied to the plant after the eggs were laid in various plant parts.
