SOIL INSECTS AND THEIR CONTROL. Lilly () defined a soil insect as “any insect, which during its growing or feeding stages lives on or beneath the soil surface.” Many species of insects fit this definition. Some would be beneficial, others would spend a nondestructive stage of their life cycle in soil, while still others would be present in the soil during a destructive stage of their Cited by: 5.

Even when there is basic laboratory-research information about the particular pest, the adaptation of these data to large-scale quarantine or control operations requires consider- able expansion and field evaluation.

And the dosage of dieldrin and heptachlor was heavier—2 pounds to the acre under most conditions, or 3 pounds of dieldrin if the white-fringed beetle was also to be controlled. In terms of their effects on birds, the prescribed use of heptachlor would be equivalent to 20 pounds of.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the driving concept behind insect (and other pest) management decisions. Pest management decisions are based on an understanding of the biology of the pest, the environmental impacts of the management options, and the economic damage causes by the pests.

IPM is based on the 3 M’s: minimize, monitor, and manage, in. beetle, a new county record. A relative of alfalfa weevil and clover root curcu-lio, whitefringed beetle is a native of southern South America. First detected in the southeastern U.S.

Larvae are found in the soil. They are up to 13 mm long, are legless and, have a grey-white body. Their large black jaws are clearly visible but the yellow brown head is generally not seen as it is retracted into the body.

Methods of Insect Control. Until the middle of the 19th century Americans were helpless against the growing insect menace.

Finally, in the s, arsenic compounds were found to be effective in combating the Colorado potato beetle. This was the first successful control of insect pests by scientific means. The adult female is mm in body length; body colour dark grey, with a lighter band along the outer margin of its wing covers and two paler longitudinal lines on each side of the head and thorax one above and one below the eye; the abdomen is densely covered with short pale hairs which become longer towards the tips of the elytra; males are shorter, about mm long, and narrower than.

White-fringed beetle larvae can be very detrimental to recently planted pine seedlings. There are about seven distinct races of this beetle but a positive identification is not necessary since the damage they do is identical.
