Abstract:Third instar elm leaf beetles, Xanthogaleruca luteola (Müller), were placed above insecticide bark bands on trunks of Siberian and 'Urban' elms and allowed to migrate across the bands. Carbaryl and bendiocarb applied at 0.5, 1 and 2%, and 0.2% esfenvalerate were effective on the day of application. Treatments of 1 and 2% carbaryl, 1 and 2% bendiocarb, and 0.2% esfenvalerate caused significant larval mortality 2 wk after application. The 0.2% esfenvalerate treatment was effective up to 8 wk after a late June application. With fIuvalinate, only the 0.4% rate caused an acceptable level of larval mortality. A treatment of 2% phosmet was ineffective.
