Abstract:We evaluated the effects of a single application of granular carbaryl made against nymphal Ixodes scapularis Say on the diversity and abundance of forest arthropods taken in pitfall traps in oak and mixed oak–pine forest sites for 12 wk after treatment in central New Jersey. Significant short-term changes in arthropod assemblages were detected immediately posttreatment. Effects were not distributed equally across taxa. Seasonal changes in numbers and diversity of forest arthropods in the study areas may have affected the impact of the acaricide in the treatment area. Comparison with control areas indicated that reductions in abundance of some arthropod taxa in the treatment area were detectable 12 wk after treatment.
