The Tarnished Plant Bug (Lygus lineolaris (Pialisot de Benuvois)) is a major pest of cotton. The insect causes damage by feeding on plant tissue and can reduce yields if left uncontrolled. They can build to high numbers if left untreated. The purpose of this experiment one was to test the effectiveness of 17 different treatments in controlling the Tarnished Plant Bug. Significant data was obtained concerning the effectiveness of the various treatments. Test two had 12 treatments in which the efficacy of various insecticides were tested for control of Tarnished Plant Bug. Significant differences were observed in the performance of the various treatments.
