Laboratory Evaluation of Imidacloprid against Trichogramma chilonis Ishii and Chrysoperla carnea (Stephens)
In the laboratory, the safety of imidacloprid (Confidor) 200SL as foliar treatment against Trichogramma chilonis Ishii and Chrysoperla carnea (Stephens) was evaluated. The results revealed that there was no significant adverse effect on adult emergence and percent parasitisation of T. chilonis and percent hatchability of Chrysoperla carnea. There was a significant adverse effect on C. carnea grubs and adult longevity when they were fed with imidacloprid. These adverse effects can be overcome by adopting seed treatment.
