RESIDUAL ACTIVITY OF FOLIAR APPLIED INSECTICIDES FOR CONTROLLING SQUASH BUG, 2002

Roberts Squash bug (SB): Anasa tristis (De Geer) Squash was direct seeded to a field at the Wes Watkins AREC, Lane, on 15 Aug. The experimental design was a RCB with 12 treatments and five replicate blocks with plots on 9 ft row spacing, 20 ft long with 20 ft alleys cut between plots in rows. Plants were thinned to a 12 inch spacing in plots. Plots were treated on 15 Sep using a tractor-mounted sprayer with three hollow-cone nozzles per row, one nozzle directed over the row and one nozzle on each side of the row on drops directed at an angle into the crop canopy. The sprayer was operated at 40 psi and delivered 20 gpa. Bioassays were conducted by placing adult female squash bugs in plastic 1 oz creamer cups and clipping them to the bottom of a lower crown leaf on one plant in each plot.

Squash bugs were not abundant and therefore adult bugs from a laboratory culture were used to bioassay residual activity of insecticides 24 h after applications.
