Abstract:Aphrophora saratogensis (Fitch) is customarily suppressed with insecticides in the adult stage. Adult spray programs must be timed carefully to get the insects after maximum eclosion but before oviposition. Nymphal suppression would minimize the timing problem. Baygon® ( (o-isopropoxyphenol methylcarbamate), 5% granular, applied to the soil before nymphet eclosion gave 100% reduction at dosages of 2 and 3 lb/acre, and 99.4 and 97.1% reduction for dosages of 1 and ½ lb/acre. Baygon applied around sweetfern plants at 2-3 lb/acre when nymphs were in the 4th stadium gave 100% mortality in 6 days.
