Abstract:Tests conducted on residential lawns in southern Florida confinned resistance to the organophosphate insecticide, chlorpyrifos, in Blissus insularis Barber. A carbamate, propoxur, and two synthetic pyrethroids, fenvalerate and pennethrin, provided good control of the resistant southern chinch bug populations.
