Abstract

Boll weevils, Anthonomus grandis grandis Boheman, administered a 46 or so gray (Gy) fractionated irradiation treatment followed by a dip in a solution containing 0.032% LY-121342 benzamide, 2-chloro-N-[[[6-[2,4-dichlorophenyl]methoxy]- 3-pyridinyl]amino]carbonyl]-6-fluoro- or LY-135926 benzamide, N-[[[6-[2,4-dichlorophenylmethoxy]-3-pyridinyl]amino] carbonyl]- had significantly higher mortality after 5 d for treated males and 10 d for treated females compared with weevils given a 43 Gy fractionated irradiation plus 0.032% LY-135926 treatment. We found only 3.0% F1 adult emergence from treated male x untreated female matings, and fecundity in treated female X untreated male matings was reduced to zero following the 43 Gy plus 0.032% LY-135926 treatment. All combination treatments of male and female weevils surviving after 15 d proved to be 98.3 ± 2.3% sterile.
