One partial negative control was treated with the noninsecticidal
BA that Syngenta AG includes along with lambda-cyhalothrin (the same Icon 10CS formulation we used for IRS) in their Icon Maxx product to extend its active life on polyester netting (36).
This finding identifies another noninsecticidal
control to protect crops from Colorado potato beetles," says Weber.
Remnants of one of the oldest things on earth--diatomaceous earth (DE)--may help solve one of today's most pressing problems: developing noninsecticidal
controls for insects in homes and food-processing facilities.
