Abstract:In studies to investigate the effectiveness of new insecticides, Bay 37289 (0-ethyl 0-(2,4,5-trichlorophenyl) ethylphosphonothioate) gave complete control of larvae of Amphimallon majalis (Razoumowsky) when 5 pounds per acre were either incorporated in the soil or applied as a surface treatment. Also, assays of soil samples from field plots showed that incorporated compounds used at 10 or 20 ib/acre would give 2 or 3 years of control, respectively, in established turf. In addition, Bay 37289 controlled the Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica New- man, in a mixed-field population of Japanese beetles awl European chafers almost as well as the chafers. Other materials tested, diazinon (slow-release and regular formulations), Dyfonate® (O-ethyl S-phenyl ethylphosphono-dithioate) , American Cyanamid CL-47031 (cyclic ethylene P,P-diethyl phosphonodithioimidocarbonate), and propoxur were inferior to Bay 37289.
