Abstract:Laboratory and field tests indicated that Thuricide HPC®, a commercial microbial insecticide formulation of spores and crystals of Bacillus turingnsis Berliner, provided effective control of Thyridopteyx ephemeraeformis (Haworth). Control, based upon larval inactivity and larval feeding, was equivalent to that obtained by using the chemical insecticide carbaryl. Thuricide HPC may be useful especially for protecting ornamentals in residential areas and nurseries where its safeness would more than offset its higher cost.
