EVALUATION OF INSECTICIDES TO CONTROL PHYTOPHAGOUS MIRIDAE, 2005: We
have determined, through various experiments over a number of years, that the most effective
insecticide application timing to control of mullein plant bug is at the pink stage of blossom
development. However, because peak hatch usually occurs sometime between full bloom and
petal fall, insecticide application during that period may be more effective. In New York, most
insecticides may not be applied during the bloom period because of the potential for killing
honey bees. Assail, registered in New York in 2005, is not included under that restriction and
may allow us more accurately to target mullein bug control. Tests were set up in 2005 to
compare the effectiveness of Lorsban 4EC and Assail 70 WP with an untreated check. Lorsban
