A novel semi-liquid ant bait matrix containing imidacloprid between 0.001 and 0.1% destroyed all laboratory colonies of Pharaoh's ant in a dose related time span. Best performance was observed with concentrations ranging from 0.01 to 0.1% imidacloprid. Two concentrations (0.01 and 0.05%) were field tested in a town in Czech Republic. All flats treated with the higher concentration of 0.05% were free of ants within two weeks after treatment. The lower rate of 0.01% also eliminated all ant… Expand

Baseline Susceptibility and Cross-Resistance in Adult and Larval Alphitobius diaperinus (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) Collected from Poultry Farms in Arkansas
ABSTRACT Insecticide resistance in the lesser mealworm, Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), can pose a serious threat to their successful management in broiler chickenExpand
Evaluation of the Efficiency of Certain Attractive Toxic Baits for the Control of the House Fly, Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidac)
The efficiency of boric acid, borax and imidacloprid is evaluated for inhibition of adult house fly emergence (IC values) as dry and liquid baits. In the two cases, imidacloprid has the greatestExpand
Chemical ecology, population dynamics and insecticide susceptibility of lesser mealworm Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
Results indicate the potential for combining the synthetic pheromone lure with the potential attractive CD compounds to enhance trap efficacy and the baseline susceptibility of lesser mealworm to imidacloprid, metaflumizone and diflubenzuron in residual bioassays. Expand
New records of the pharaoh ant Monomorium pharaonis (Linnaeus, 1758) (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Romania
The pharaoh ant, Monomorium pharaonis (L.), is a well-known adventive and invasive indoor pest species. Although this species is very common in temperate Europe, it has been previously recorded inExpand


Efficacy of simulated barrier treatments against laboratory colonies of Pharaoh ant.
Empirical results demonstrate efficacy of nonrepellent liquid insecticides as indoor treatments for the control of Pharaoh ants and possibly as exterior perimeter treatments. Expand
Effects of Juvenile Hormone Analogs on New Reproductives and Colony Growth of Pharaoh Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Abstract Two juvenile hormone analogs (JHAs), pyriproxyfen and S-methoprene, were impregnated into dried tuna fish and fed to colonies of Monomorium pharaonis (L.) at very low concentrations (1.0,Expand
Control of house flies, Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae), with Imidacloprid WG 10 in pig farms (Germany).
The fast knock down within minutes and long term activity of the imidacloprid WG 10 against Musca domestica (L.) (Diptera/Muscidae) after application as spray or paint-on was confirmed with numerous trials in different livestock housings. Expand
Colonial growth dynamics of tropical urban pest ants, Monomorium pharaonis, M. floricola and M. destructor (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).
The mechanism of caste regulation in these tropical household ant species is discussed, and the growth dynamics of M. pharaonis and M. floricola colonies were high, even in the absence of queen or brood. Expand
Pharaoh's ants as pathogen vectors in hospitals.
Long-standing infestations of Pharaoh's ants in nine hospitals were sampled to determine whether these ants carry organisms of medical interest, in particular Salmonella, Pseudomonas œruginosa, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus spp. Expand
Detection and Quantification of Pharaoh Ant Antigens in Household Dust Samples as Newly Identified Aeroallergens
The results suggest that PAs might be a significant source of aeroallergens in households and inhalant exposure to PA antigens can occur during domestic activities. Expand
Studies on the Structure-Activity Relationship and Mode of Actions of Neonicotinoid Insecticides
