Trials for the control of Syringopais temperatella Lederer were conducted in Cyprus over the 4 year period, 1969–72. BHC was effective against larvae both as a spray treatment applied during the growing season and as a soil treatment applied at the time of sowing. Parathion, fenitrothion, diazinon, chlorpyriphos, mevinphos, and an endrin-dicrotophos mixture also were effective as spray treatments while trichloronate and carbofuran were effective as soil treatments. A single deep plowing in summer was not effective in controlling the larvae. Early stage larvae were more susceptible than late stage larvae to insecticides. A significant correlation was obtained between larval population and loss in grain yield. A BHC spray applied early in the growing period provided season long control and tended to increase yield over late applications.
