AbstractProper timing of treatments, as well as choice of insecticides, is highly important in preventing losses in both yield and quality from lygus bug feeding on lima beans. In these tests, early applications were important and use of the organo-phosphorus insecticides Cygon alone, or malathion in combination with toxaphene proved most effective for control of this pest.
