Malathion, a protectant for natural raisins againts insect infestation (ARS) Unknown Binding – January 1, by Garth H Spitler (Author)Author: Garth H Spitler. In laboratory tests in California in , sprays and dusts of malathion were evaluated as protectants of dried raisins against different stages of various insect pests. They generally gave good protection against Plodia interpunctella (Hb.). Oryzaephilus surinamensis (L.) and O. mercator (Fauv.) but not against Trogoderma inclusum by: 1. Kill mosquitoes, aphids, whiteflies, mealybugs, red spider mites and scales with Ortho MAX Malathion Insect Spray Concentrate. Easily apply this concentrate using an Ortho Dial 'N Spray applicator. This formula can be used on ornamentals, roses, flowers, shrubs, trees, fruits, citrus and vegetables/5(). Malathion was applied at an overall dosage of 8 or 12 ppm to layers of stored oats transferred with an auger to small bins of 123 metric tons capacity. The oats were heating (35–40°C) and were heavily infested ( insects/kg) with Oryzaephilus surinamensis (L.). Malathion controlled the infestation at 12 ppm but not at 8 : F.L. Watters.

Malathion Protection of Wheat Grain against Insect Infestation Bioassays Adult insects days old which were bred at a constant temperature of 25 were used in the bioassays. Groups of insects were introduced into the wheat in experimental jars which were then sealed with terylene voile held in place by rubber by: Spectracide ® Malathion Insect Spray Concentrate Spectracide ® Malathion Insect Spray Concentrate Spectracide Malathion Insect Spray Concentrate is formulated to protect listed ornamentals, fruits and vegetables from aphids, red spider mites, mealybugs, thrips, scales, whiteflies and other listed unwanted insects. Fenitrothion at one half the application rate of malathion appears to give equivalent protection against the deterioration of stored wheat caused by attack from stored product insect pests. INTRODUCTION STORED wheat in Australia is subject to attack by insect by: 6. An emulsion containing 0 per cent pyrethrins and 0 per cent piperonyl butoxide, applied to smoke-dried freshwater fish in Zambia, prevented infestation by Dermestes ater and D. maculatus (partly by repelling adults) but became ineffective 8–12 weeks after application. An emulsion containing 0 per cent malathion gave good control for 8 weeks, but left up to 43 Cited by:

Protection of stored foodstuffs against insect infestation by by:   Currently, malathion has been used comprehensively for controlling red flour beetle, but now, it is not so effective against this pest due to the insect resistance (Horton, ). Malathion is less toxic to the mammals whereas the pesticide causes negative effects even to the non-targeted organisms including humans (Parkin et al. ).Author: Alif Alisha A S, Thangapandiyan S. The organophosphorus compounds, however, decompose rapidly and recent advances in understanding the mechanisms of selective toxicity of insecticides such as malathion have led to safer insecticides such as malathion, bromphos, pirimiphos methyl, chlorpyrifos methyl, etc.   Efficacy of insecticides against insect pests of maize crop and its influence on natural enemy in Peshawar Article (PDF Available) in JOURNAL OF ENTOMOLOGY AND ZOOLOGY STUDIES 3(4) July Author: Muhammad Nawaz Khan.
