The effects of residues of various concentrations of triazophos, tartar emetic, chlorpyriphos, and mineral oil on last instars and adults of Chilocorus nigritus (F.) were determined. Only triazophos had a residual effect on the beetles. When triazophos is included in an integrated pest management program on citrus, it should be used at the dosage of 60 ml triazophos per 100 liters water applied twice, rather than as a single application of 125 ml triazophos per 100 liters water. Under field conditions, triazophos lost its toxicity to adult C. nigritus in only 5 d but was toxic for 16 d against last instars. Under glasshouse conditions, triazophos lost its toxicity against adults in 30 d.
