Abstract:Tests were conducted between 1967and 1972in southern Georgia to control Chalcodermus aeneus Boheman on southern peas, Vigna sinensis (Torner) Savio All insecticides gave variable results. Most effective insecticides applied as sprays at 4-day intervals during pod formation were toxaphene, monocrotophos, carbofuran, leptophos, and carbaryl. Granular insecticides applied over the row showed promise when applied in summer against adults. Foliage sprays applied in spring before pod formation to control overwintered adult immigrants were ineffective, but applied in a coarse spray and directed to the base of the plants they were effective when synchronized with peak immigration.
