Abstract The efficacy and nonrepellency of indoxacarb (150 SC, 150 g [AI]/liter) and fipronil (Termidor SC, 9.1% [AI]) against field-collected eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar), and the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki, were evaluated for mortality and penetration into treated soil in laboratory glass tube bioassays. Both insecticides were tested at five concentrations (0, 1, 10, 50, and 100 ppm) and two thicknesses (20 and 50 mm) of… Expand
Efficacy of indoxacarb and chlorfenapyr against Subterranean termite Heterotermes indicola (Wasmann) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in the laboratory
Efficacy, feeding deterrence and transfer of indoxacarb and chlorfenapyr by the subterranean termite, Heterotermes indicola (Wasmann), were evaluated in laboratory tests at Nuclear Institute for FoodExpand
Temperature-Mediated Variations in Behavior and Mortality Caused by Non-Repellent Insecticides in Subterranean Termites (Blattodea: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Intoxication and moribundity were the most frequently observed behaviors for fipronil-exposed termites, whereas intoxication, ataxia, and moribia were observed for most concentration and temperature combinations for indoxacarb-exp exposed termites. Expand
Toxicity, Uptake, and Transfer Efficiency of Fipronil in Western Subterranean Termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Results in the laboratory studies suggest that horizontal transfer was not a major factor contributing to the efficacy of fipronil in the field, and the active and nonrepellent termiticide was effective against western subterranean termites. Expand
Effects of non-repellent termiticides on the tunneling and walking ability of the eastern subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
TLDR
Exposure of R. flavipes to several concentrations of commercial formulations of fipronil and indoxacarb significantly reduced termite walking and tunneling and the number of tunnel branches. Expand
Impacts on Reticulitermes flavipes (Infraorder Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) by Chlorantraniliprole Applied to Soil Surrounding Established Tunnels
TLDR
Results from these evaluations suggest that termites readily crawl through chlorantraniliprole-treated mature tunnels, rapidly lose ability to feed, and acquire a lethal dose from brief exposures. Expand
Temporal Changes in Chlorantraniliprole and Indoxacarb in Four Midwestern Soils and Bioefficacy Against the Eastern Subterranean Termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Temporal changes in indoxacarb and chlorantraniliprole were determined in four midwestern soils by simulating commercial field applications of termiticides to confirm that vertical differences in termiticide persistence occur in various soils. Expand
Toxicity and Horizontal Transfer of Chlorantraniliprole in the Eastern Subterranean Termite
TLDR
Chlorantraniliprole has dose-independent toxicity, delayed toxicity, and is readily transferred in eastern subterranean termites, and transfers efficiently among the termites. Expand
Tunneling and activity of reticulitermes flavipes (isoptera: rhinotermitidae) exposed to low concentrations of nonrepellent termiticides
TLDR
Tunneling and activity bioassays otchlortenapyr, fipronil, and imidacloprid treated sand were conducted in the laboratory using Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) and termite activity was determined from sound events detected in an acoustical event detection system over a 48 h period. Expand
Response of the subterranean termite Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) to soil treated with microencapsulated fenobucarb.
TLDR
The results suggest that microencapsulated fenobucarb is a fast-acting termiticide, with a good barrier effect as a soil treatment, that also acts as a reduced repellent, retarding entry of termites into treated soil. Expand
LABORATORY EVALUATION OF TRANSFER EFFECT OF TERMITICIDES AS A SLOW-ACTING TREATMENT AGAINST SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE COPTOTERMES GESTROI (ISOPTERA: RHINOTERMITIDAE)
TLDR
The results showed that fipronil killed the donor termite faster compared to indoxacarb and imidacloprid, and the range of the mean percent mortality of recipient termites was different compared to therange of mean mortality of donor termites. Expand

Insecticide Susceptibility in Coptotermes formosanus and Reticulitermes virginicus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Findings indicate substantial inter-colonies and intra-colony differences in susceptibility to insecticides. Expand
Survivorship and tunneling activity of Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in response to termiticide soil barriers with and without gaps of untreated soil
In laboratory tests, survivorship and tunneling response of Eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar), to termiticide soil barriers were dependent on active ingredient in theExpand
Toxicity and repellency of components in formulated termiticides against Western subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Sands treated with solvent systems used to formulate commercially available termiticides, except for isofenphos, were toxic to western subterranean termites, killing 24-86% after a 24-h exposure to sand air dried for 1 d, but irrigating solvent-treated sands with the equivalent of 1.27 cm of rainfall removed all toxicity.

Laboratory performance and pharmacokinetics of the benzoylphenylurea noviflumuron in eastern subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
TLDR
A benzoylphenylurea insect growth regulator was evaluated for use as a baiting toxicant against the eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar), and demonstrated significantly greater potency and faster speed of action compared with the commercial standard hexaflumuron. Expand
Effect of Tolerance to Insecticides on Substrate Penetration by Formosan Subterranean Termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Increased tolerance in C. formosanus was accompanied by a decrease in penetration of treated substrata with chlordane, methoxychlor, chlorpyrifos, deltamethrin, bendiocarb, and fipronil and the opposite was true for permethrin. Expand
Toxicity of a formulation of the insecticide indoxacarb to the tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Hemiptera: Miridae), and the big-eyed bug, Geocoris punctipes (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae).
TLDR
A major route of intoxication of L lineolaris in indoxacarb-treated cotton fields thus appears to be via oral, and not cuticular, uptake of residues from treated cotton plants. Expand
Comparison of tunneling responses into insecticide-treated soil by field populations and laboratory groups of subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
The overall tunneling behavior exhibited by field populations into insecticide- treated soil is essentially the same as that of laboratory groups of 80 foragers, but in some instances the threshold concentrations recorded from field populations were higher than those observed from laboratory groups.
