Abstract
A technique for testing insecticides against the Antestia Bug Antestiopsis lineaticollis (Stil) is described. Single trees, artificially infested with known numbers of fifth instar nymphs are sprayed with four concentrations of each toxicant. Results are given for seven insecticides. These, in descending order of effectiveness, are: parathion, methyl-parathion, fenthion, Sumithion, trichlorphon, malathion and diazinon.
