Abstract:Water extracts of fresh and dried garbanzo beans were effective feeding stimulants for larvae of the tobacco bud worm, Heliothis virescens (F.). Both materials were as effective as a commercial cottonseed-base stimulant in enhancing larval mortality when mixed with virus and applied to cotton leaf disks. Virus-water extracts of garbanzo bean leaves and pods were no more effective in producing larval mortality than was virus mixed with water alone.
