Abstract

The LC50s of synthetic pyrethroids and quinalphos against fourth-instar larvae of sesamum leaf webber and capsule borer (Antigastra catalaunalis) revealed that deltamethrin (0.00006685%) was the most toxic, followed by cypermethrin (0.00008077%), fluvalinate (0.00016865%), fenpropathrin (0.00042483%), fenvalerate (0.00076981%) and quinalphos (0.00113497%).
