The toxicity of two juvenile hormone analogues, pyriproxyfen (Nemesis®) and fenoxycarb (Insegar®), and two contact insecticides, methomyl (Lannate) and methidathion (Ultracide), was evaluated against immature stages (LI, LII, LIII) of Ceroplastes destructor Newstead in the field. The effects of these chemicals and one moulting inhibitor, triflumuron (Alsystin®), and three insecticides: methyl-parathion (Penncap-M), profenofos (Selecron) and prothiofos (Tokuthion), on Aprostocetus… CONTINUE READING
