Laboratory evaluation of insecticides against larvae of pasture scarabs

Turner, J.W. and Roubicek, M.S. (1970) Laboratory evaluation of insecticides against larvae of pasture scarabs. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 27 (3). pp. 337-340.



Twelve insecticides, incorporated into a limited soil habitat, were tested for kills of final instar larvae of Othnionius batesiii Oll., Sericesthis vigilana Sharp and Rhopaea magnicornis Blkb. "Dursban" at 1 and 5 p.p.m. and diazinon and parathion at 5 p.p.m. gave high mortalities of O. batesii. A wider range of chemicals, including lindane, diazinon and aldrin each at 1 p.p.m., gave high mortalities of S. vigilana but very high dosages were required for equivalent kills of R. magnicornis.
