Tarnished Plant Bug Control in the Mississippi Delta

J. T. Robbins, F. A. Harris and R. E. Furr


Effective tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois), control was accomplished with foliar applied insecticides. Orthene® 90S at 0.5 lb ai/A and 1.0 lb ai/A consistently gave the greatest reduction in nymphs and adults. Several pyrethroids, including Baythroid® 2EC, Karate® 1EC and 1CS, and Fury® 1.5EC gave good plant bug control, but some cases of variable effectiveness may be the result of pyrethroid resistance in the population. Bidrin® 8 (0.25 lb ai/A), Provado® 1.6F (0.047 lb ai/A), and Monitor® 4EC (0.31 lb ai/A) provided effective control. Regent® 2.5EC (0.038 lb ai/A) significantly reduced plant bug infestation and is a promising new product. Furadan® 4F at 0.25 lb ai/A provided a moderate level of tarnished plant bug control, which would be a beneficial side effect when used against another primary target pest such as cotton aphid.
