Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the type, location, and abundance of different sensilla on the antennae and mouthparts of S. vicinus and S. borelli." Describes the experiment and methods used. Reports that "bifenthrin, fipronil, and bifenthris plus imidacloprid provided the fastest mortality (38.3, 35.5 and 10.3 hours for adults, and 9.5, 10.4 and 6.5 hours for nymphs, respectively)."

USGA Summary Points:All tested insecticides (except indoxacarb and its metabolite) caused neural excitation, so their use could lead to increased tunneling, especially at sublethal doses. Fipronil, bifenthrin, and bifenthrin plus imidacloprid killed mole cricket adults and nymphs faster than imidacloprid, indoxicard, the indoxacarb metabolite (DCWJ), and acephate. Fipronil, bifenthrin, and bifenthrin plus imidacloprid immobilized mole crickets within an hour, completely distrupting their tunneling activity at the tested dose. Insects injected with acephate and then held in petri dishes had increased tunneling and crawling. Imidacloprid caused immediate knockdown (within 30 seconds), but although the insects partially recovered, they could still walk but not tunnel.
