Full article, as submitted to the "Journal of Insect Science" in (.pdf) format - Insect Science (2008) 15, 133-140, DOI 10.1111/j.1744-7917.2008.00193.x

Field trials were conducted at a commercial food storage warehouse to evaluate exposure of stored-products insects to the Entech Automatic Fogging System using 1.0% pyrethrin and the Insect Growth Regulator Diacon II (methoprene). Both adult and immature life stages of red and confused flour beetles were tested. Indian meal moth eggs, and larvae were also tested. The 1.0% pyrethrin tests, with flour beetles, were made using 4" petri dishes with and without 250 mg of flour, and exposure to 80% of the maximum labeled use rate of 1.0 ounce of insecticide for each 1,000 cubic feet of air space fogged. Separate tests were conducted exposing immature life stages of Indian meal moths and flour beetles to Diacon II Insect Growth Regulator. Control of insects is improved when the insecticide is combined with the Insect Growth Regulator in one fogging application rather than in separate foggings in Dr Arthur's data. Insect control is also improved when the insecticide is used at the maximum use rate. Dr. Arthur's evaluations were conducted using 80% of the maximum use rate with Entech Fog-10. 3.0% pyrethrin (Entech Fog-30) is also available in addition to the 1.0% pyrethrin (Entech Fog-10) used in Dr. Arthur's tests.
