Chlorpyrifos (185 g AI/100 liters), applied to young peach trees (beginning with 2nd leaf) for 3 consective years, substantially reduced infestations of the peachtree borer, Synanthedon exitiosa (Say), when a single application was made on June 15, July 15, or Aug. 15, each year. A similar trend for control at the same application times appeared to be developing for the lesser peachtree borer, S. pictipes (Grote and Robinson). For S. exitiosa, a single application, at half the present recommended rate, per season during the summer was effective. Flexibility in timing of the application during the season, a low rate, and reduced number of applications are advantages that might be incorporated into a pest management program for control of peach borers.
