Abstract:The order of effectiveness of the various insecticides tested was similar against the tobacco wireworm, Conoderus vespertinus (F), and the southern potato wire- C. falli Lane, but the latter was slightly easier to During 1964-68 no appreciable change was noted in the degree of wireworm control obtained with diazinon, but wireworms developed a 2-fold tolerance to Wireworm resistance to aldrin increased to the that 2 Ib/acre of this material was virtually in- The following treatments were as effective as Ib/acre of diazinon in both preliminary and advanced tests: I Ib of Dyfonate® (O-ethyl S-phenyl ethylphosphonodithioate, thioate), phorate, and Zinophos®(O,O-diethyl 0-2-pyrazinyl phosphorothioate, 2 Ib of Bay-37289 (O-ethyl O-2,4,5-trichlorophenyl ethylphosphonothioate), Dasanit, it® (O-O-diethyl O-[p- (methylsullinyl) phenyl] phosphorparathion_othioate) , and Mocap® (O-ethyl S,S-dipropyl phosphoropoint-dithioate) , and 4 Ib of carbofuran. effective.
