Abstract

Chlorobenzilate—ethyl p, p'-dichlorobenzilate—offers certain advantages in citrus pest control: it has a very low toxicity to warm-blooded animals which places it in the same category as Ovotran and Aramite; its application does not seriously affect insect parasites and predators or bees.
