Abstract:Foliar applications of various formulations of carbaryl and carbofuran were equally effective in reducing chinch bug, Blissus leucopterus leucopterus (Say), numbers on sorghum regardless of where on plants or how many bugs were present. In-furrow, planting-time treatments of carbofuran, terbufos, bendiocarb, or acephate and seed treatments of carbofuran were equally effective in initially controlling both chinch bugs and green bugs, Schizaphis graminum (Rondani), on seedling sorghum. Carbofuran and bendiocarb provided the longest residual control, up to 30 days after planting. Band treatments of carbofuran effectively controlled chinch bugs if rain fell, but band treatments of phorate, terbufos, or disulfoton exhibited little or no insecticidal activity against chinch bugs. All planting-time treatments active against chinch bugs also were effective against green bugs but the reverse was not true.
