Survival (percent emergence) of immature Telenomus podisi Ashmead and rice stink bug, Oebalus pugnax F., embryos after field applications of methyl parathion and carbaryl was detennined in split-split plot experiments. Two stages (2-3 d and 6-8 d old) of immature T. podisi were placed either 40 or 70 em above the water in the rice canopy. T. podisi immatures that were located near the top of the rice canopy had reduced survival compared with those placed at the lower canopy, regardless of age. Compared with immature T. podisi, rice stink bug embryos in the upper canopy were significantly more susceptible to the insecticides. Insecticides had no significant effect on immature T. podisi or stink bug eggs located in the lower canopy. Methyl parathion reduced survival of T. podisi immatures and rice stink bug embryos more than carbaryl.
