Abstract

Imidan, methoxychlor, Guthion (azinphosmethyI), methyI parathion, malathion, Zolone (phosalone), Furadan (car-bofuran), Vydate (oxarnyl), and Lannate (methomyl) were evaluated in three field experiments at selected dosages for control of the Egyptian alfalfa weevil on first cutting alfalfa at Salinas, California. All the insecticide treatments resulted in significant weevil control compared with unsprayed check plots. Furadan, Zolone, and Vydate controlled the pea aphid, Acyr-thosiphon pisum, present in one of the experiments.
