End Date: Sep 30, 2014
Tests will be conducted in the laboratory and in small field tests in Hawaii with MFF, OFF, and MF. Seven treatments will be laboratory formulated and field tested: 1) Warrior, 2) Force, 3) Gardstar, 4) Entrust, 5) Cyazypyr, 6) Radiant, and 7) Diazinon. Treatments against larvae and pupae will be tested in plastic containers in the laboratory and later in small pots with soil with four replications in a completely randomized block design and subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA)(Proc GLM) and means separated with a least significant difference (LSD) test at the P = 0.05 level.
