The persistence of malathion, bromophos, and iodofenphos was affected by abrasion of treated plywood surfaces as indicated by a bioassay with adults of a malathion-susceptible strain of Tribolium castaneum (Herbst). Persistence of malathion EC and WP and bromophos WP applied at 0.25 g AI/m2 was significantly extended (P <0.01) by abrasion with a broom, whereas, the persistence of malathion EC and WP, bromophos EC and WP, and iodofenphos EC was significantly reduced (P < 0.05) by abrasion with wheat kernels.
