Ironside, D.A. and Giles, J. (1981) Effect of insecticides on Homoeosoma vagella Zellar damage to macadamia flowers. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 38 (1). pp. 61-64. ISSN issn:0033-6173



Pre-bloom plus full bloom dipping of flower racemes in solutions of 0 · 05% acephate, 0·01% acephate plus 13 g per 100L Bacillus thuringiensis, 0·01% acephate, and 13 g per 100L B. thuringiensis, in descending order of efficacy, significantly reduced Homoeosoma vagella damage to macadamia flowers and increased the set of immature nuts. Similar applications of 0·01% trichlorphon plus 13 g per 100 L B. thuringiensis and 0·01% trichlorphon reduced damage but did not significantly increase nut set. The addition of 13 g per 100 L of B. thuringiensis to 0·01% acephate and to 0·01% trichlorphonhad no significant effect.
