Dichlorvos, naled, trichlorfon and Isolan® (1-isopropyl-3-methylpyrazolyl-5-dimethylcarbamate), when incorporated into a protein-base attractant, produced good kill and knockdown of an eye gnat, Hippelates collusor (Townsend). The first three, when added at high concentrations to Lursect,™ attracted fewer eye gnats, but Isolan showed good activity at all concentrations employed. Acetone, ethyl ether, methyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol, used as solvents for toxicant impregnation, reduced initial…

Oviposition attractants and repellents of mosquitoes
TLDR
Gravid female mosquitoes might have acquired, through evolutional adaptation, the ability of avoiding ovipositing in unsuitable sites in which toxic compounds might be detrimental to the survival and development of their offspring.
Damage to coconut palms by Azteca sp. (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) and insecticidal control with bait, in Guyana.
A general survey of coconut plantations in Guyana in 1976 indicated that in the total area of about 18 700 ha, 1000 of the 3000 ha of coconut palms on the east coast of Demerara were infested by
