    Description

    Stabilized pyrethrins were test in a laboratory spray chamber to provide information for planning field trials of this insecticide against the western spruce budworm (Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman). No significant differences were found in toxicity to instars 3 to 6. Stabilizers appear to have had no effect on basic contact toxicity. The commercial formulation of pyrethrins was as toxic as the laboratory formulated standard. Probably only slight residual activity can be expected. No effect on basic contact toxicity could be produced by increasing concentration through a range of about one order of magnitude.
