Effect of Dimethoate and Cypermethrin on Soil Dwelling Beetles

09-11-1998

The effects of insecticide on ground and rove beetles were investigated in laboratory and field tests, using cypermethrin and dimethoate as test insecticides. Dose-response curves were established for two beetles (Aleochara bilineata: Staphylinidae and Bembidion lampros: Carabidae) in the laboratory with a standard test method. The standard tests were conducted on quartz sand, which is defined as the worst case scenario.
