Ninety compounds structurally related to those compounds found in previous tests to be highly repellent to stored-product insects were evaluated as potential repellents of the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst). Thirty-three of the 90 compounds were as repellent or more so than the pyrethrins-piperonyl butoxide combination used as a standard for comparison. Eight of 12 peroxycarbamic acid and 9 of 11 benzotriazin compounds tested were highly repellent to the test insect. N-Butylsulfenyl N,N-dimethyldithiocarbamate (peroxycarbamic acid, dimethyltrithio-, butyl ester) produced the highest average repellency recorded in standard repellency tests at this laboratory.
