BACKGROUND Historically, inert insecticidal powders such as diatomaceous earth were researched for pest management applications, and it was revealed that these types of powders killed insects by desiccation. However, data on the critical material properties that affect their efficacy are sparse. The present study investigated the insecticidal effect of powdered materials on the pharaoh ant, a notorious domestic pest. RESULTS The insecticidal activity of 24 porous materials was tested. Eight… CONTINUE READING
