Title:
Sweetpotato Whitefly Control: Enhancement of the Repellency of Oils

Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
The repellency to adult SPW of 1% Saf -T -Side and 1% Natur'1 Oil was enhanced by the addition of Butracide + Pounce, Butracide + Pyrellin, or a pyrethrum + diatomaceous earth. Several materials containing pyrethrum appeared to improve the repellency of 2% Saf -T -Side. The number of eggs laid was correlated with the number of adults observed on the plants, thus emphasizing the importance of the repellency of SPW adults. Three oils at 1% concentration gave a high mortality of SPW nymphs. Several materials killed nymphs when applied with a fine spray, simulating the deposit of a mist blower.
