Abstract:In laboratory tests, lesser meal worm, Alphttobius dtapertnus (Panzer), larvae were fed chicken rations containing one of six benzoylphenylurea compounds, thuringiensin, cyromazine, or ivermectin. The more active compounds were incorporated into the feed of broiler chicks housed in small pens to which adult lesser meal worms had been introduced. After 8 wk, essentially no lesser mealworm larvae could be found in the pens to which penfluron; 2,6-difluoro- N-]]]4-(trifluoromethoxy )phenyl]amino ]carbony I]benzamide; N -]]]3,5- dichloro -4 -]]3- chloro- 5- (trifluoromethyl) - 2- pyridinyl] oxy]phenyl]amino]carbonyl]- 2, 6difluorobenzamide; N-]]]3,5- dichlor- 4- (1,1,2,2- tetra fluoroethoxy) phenyl]amino ]car bonyl]- 2,6- difluorobenzamide; or ivermectin had been added to the feed at a level of ≤2.5 ppm.
