The phytophagous bug Oxycarenus lavaterae F. may sometimes cause major public concern because of its breeding in large numbers near towns. This happened between 1994 and 1996 in Cornelia de Llobregat, Baix Llobregat, northeastern Spain. As information on its susceptibility to pesticides was scarce, a laboratory susceptibility test was designed. Different dilutions of 3 pyrethroids (beta-cyfluthrin, tralomethrin, and deltamethrin) and 3 organophosphates (acephate, phoxim, and malathion) were evaluated by means of a direct-spray test. Tralomethrin at 22.7 mg/liter yielded an LT50 of 30.6 min and was considered to be the most appropriate product for field use.
