Abstract
Seventeen laboratory tests on the effect of insecticides in soil on newly hatched larvae are described, as well as one on slightly older larvae. Gamma RH.C. is shown to be the most promising, causing considerable mortality at rates as low as 2.5 ppm. but, even so, it is doubtful whether the control of larvae by such methods will be an economic proposition.
