The mortality of larvae of Heliothis zea (Boddie) on corn seedlings grown in the greenhouse increased significantly when an arrestant-feeding stimulant extracted from sweet corn kernels was mixed with Shell SD-8447 (2-chloro- 1-(2,4,5-trichlorophenyl) vinyl dimethyl phosphate), and Compared with mortality on a check treated with SD-8447 only. Also, damage to com ears decreased significantly when the extract plus SD-8447 was applied to artificially infested sweet corn silks in the field. Thus the incorporation of an arrestant-feeding stimulant with an insecticide would increase the effectiveness of a corn earworm control program.
