A field experiment was conducted at Cape Cod, Mass., to determine the efficacy of carbaryl aerially applied at the rate of 1 qt AI/acre and of Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner (Thuricide l6-B®) at the rate of 1 and 2 qt AI/acre on Lambdina athasaria pellucidaria (Grote and Robinson). Results of a single aerial application of all insecticides indicate that Thuricide 16-B at 2 qt/acre was most effective compared to either the 1 qt/acre applications of the Thuricide or carbaryl in lowering the population levels of the L. athasaria pellucidaria. Carbaryl was least effective; Thuricide 16B at 1 qt/acre was intermediate in effectiveness.
