Insecticidal activity of thiamethoxam against the bamboo powder post beetle Dinoderus minutus Fabr. (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae)
Journal of Pest Science 81 (2), 109-113
Abstract: Thiamethoxam (ACTARA® 25WG) was evaluated for its insecticidal activities against the bamboo powder post beetle Dinoderus minutus Fabricius (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae). The study showed that thiamethoxam had contact toxicity against D. minutus. Based on dose-mortality responses, LC50 values for thiamethoxam against D. minutus ranged from 1.74 to 7.94 μg ml-1. Laboratory and field exposure tests showed that thiamethoxam at concentration of at least 10 μg ml-1 may have anti-oviposition or anti-feeding effects on D. minutus and can protect post harvest Bambusa vulgaris Schrad. culms against the infestation of this bamboo boring beetle.
