Abstract:Natural infestations of lone star ticks in wooded plots at Camp Lejeune, NC, were treated with granules or concentrated sprays of diazinon, propoxur, and chlorpyrifos. Then the effects of the treatments were measured for 6 wk post-treatment. Probit analysis of the 6-wk dose-control data indicated that 90% effective doses ED90 for 10.25% chlorpyrifos sprays, 1% chlorpyrifos granules, 12.8% propoxur sprays, and 14% diazinon granules were 0.31, 0.54, 0.69, and 2.2 kg AI/ha, respectively.
