The efficacy of several registered and unregistered insecticides, applied at various dosage rates for control of the Egyptian alfalfa weevil, Hypera brunneipennis (Boheman), was investigated during 1973, 1974, and 1975. The impact of these materials on pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum (Harris), was evaluated in 1974 and 1975. Control of both species, in small plot tests, was obtained with dosage rates considerably below those currently recommended with the registered insecticides.
