Various feeding attractant formulations derived from fermented egg solids by freeze-drying were mixed with commercial sugar-toxicant baits (containing 1% dichlorvos) and studied against Hippelates collusor (Townsend). The attractant formulations showed greatest initial potency when dispensed at the rate of 2–5 g/spot. Longevity of the formulation under simulated field conditions was directly proportional to the amount of formulation dispensed. The overall optimum rate of application was 2–5 g/spot, with the optimum concentration of dichlorvos in the attractant formulation being 0.25–0.5%. Large amounts of the mixture showed some initial repellency which declined with longer exposure.
