Ovicidal Activity of Ambush, a Synthetic Pyrethroid Insecticide, on Corn Earworm, Fall Armyworm, and Cabbage Looper
AbstractLaboratory bio-assays with Ambush (m-phenoxybenzyl (@+)-cis, trans-3-(2, 2-dichlorovinyl)-2, 2-dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylate) and chlordimeform (Galecron) insecticides were conducted on eggs of the corn earworm, Heliothis zea (Boddie), the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) and the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni (Hubner). Ambush displayed ovicidal activity on the 3 pest species comparable to that achieved with Galecron.
