    Codling moth granulosis virus (sold as Cyd-X) is a safe biological pesticide that won’t harm beneficials or bees. Add 1% horticultural oil to increase effectiveness. Apply every seven days after eggs hatch, at least three or four times per generation. Spinosad is a low-toxicity pesticide made more effective by adding 1% horticultural oil. The effectiveness of lead arsenate was improved, first, by the addition of summer oil which killed eggs and held the lead arsenate more firmly to the fruit, and second, by the addition of nicotine sulfate to the lead arsenate-oil which killed adult moths.

Efficacy of lead arsenate in controlling the codling moth by Ralph Henry Smith Download PDF EPUB FB2

In the early s the U.S. Department of Agriculture determined that spraying lead arsenate on fruit trees was a highly effective barrier to infestations of codling moth caterpillars. The agency began promoting it and orchardists across the country were happy to find a way to control the pest that could knock out entire crops.

To control the infestations, lead and arsenic were combined to form lead arsenate and sprayed on fruit trees. Unfortunately, the codling moth grew more resistant, and more and more lead arsenate was applied to repel the potent pest. This resulted in a buildup of lead and arsenic in the soils.

As elements, lead and arsenic do not break down. Lead arsenate (PbHAsO 4) was first used in apple orchards in the ’s to combat the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (Linnaeus), a destructive insect of apples.

This inorganic pesticide was very popular among farmers due to its immediate effectiveness. It was also inexpensive, easy to mix and very persistent. Over the next six decades, lead arsenate.

The control of codling moth with E In comparative trials, carried out for one year in an orchard of heavily infested Cox's Orange trees, % Ef proved as effective as lead arsenate for the control of codling moth.

Cookies on CAB Direct Like most websites we use : E. Loewel, H. Reich. Experiments in which DDT was compared with lead arsenate for the control of the codling moth [Cydia pomonella, L] on apple were carried out in two orchards in Delaware during The spray formulae and programmes and the results of the tests are given in detail in tables; suitable fungicides were included in almost all sprays.

The quantities of spray ingredients Author: P. Rice, L. Stearns. proposed in place of lead arsenate in codling moth control, principally be- cause it avoids lead residues. Arsenates and arsenites of many limeof the other elements have been investi- gated for insecticidal use arsenicalbut none has been developed Calciuminto satisfactory mate- rials.

Organic arsenicals have likewise. Lead arsenate (PbHAsO 4) was first used in apple orchards in the s to combat the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), a destructive insect pest. This pesticide was very popular among farmers because of its effectiveness, low cost, ease of use, and persistence.

Over the next 60 years the frequency and amount of lead arsenate applications. At that time, the codling moth was becoming resistant to lead arsenate. The only reason it had much effect by this time, Peryea said, was because orchardists were spraying so much of it. They Loved LA. LA was introduced in in Massachusetts for use against the gypsy moth.

Two other arsenical pesticides (copper acetoarsenite, known as “Paris green,” and calcium arsenate) also were in use, although LA largely replaced them in the s due to lower cost, greater efficacy, and lower by: Lead arsenate (PbHAsO 4) was first used in apple orchards in the s to combat the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), a destructive insect pest.

Development of resistance to lead arsenate and DDT in codling moth resulted in a shift to organophosphate insecticides (Croft, BraderBarnes & Moffitt ). Codling moth control with organophosphates, especially azinphosmethyl, has formed the basis for management systems in apple over the past 25 years (Hoyt ).

Calcium arsenate use was reported in the USA and Peru (Shepard, ) and it was particularly popular in Germany (Balachowsky and Mesnil, ).

Aluminum arsenate insecticides were developed and. Lead hydrogen arsenate, also called lead arsenate, acid lead arsenate or LA, chemical formula PbHAsO 4, is an inorganic insecticide used primarily against the potato beetle.

[citation needed] Lead arsenate was the most extensively used arsenical principal formulations of lead arsenate were marketed: basic lead arsenate (Pb 5 OH(AsO 4) 3, CASN: ) and acid lead arsenate.

The increase in application frequency was due to the development of resistance against lead arsenate, the primary agent used for codling moth control dur- ing this period (Hough ; Croft and Riedl ). Lead arsenate use in USA effectively terminated inwhen DDT became widely available to the public. By that time, the principal target pest, codling moth, had developed resistance to the arsenate compound, and DDT was found to be a much more effective control.

This pesticide was very popular among farmers because of its effectiveness, low cost, ease of use, and persistence.

But by the s, the codling moth grew resistant.
