Effect of Dimethoate and Cypermethrin on Soil Dwelling Beetles


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.
