Chemical control of Hyphantria cunea in Turkey

Experiments were carried out in Turkey to control Hyphantria cunea (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) which has been an important pest in the hazelnut plantations of the East Black Sea region since 1982. Multiyear experiments showed that endosulfan, triflumuron, diflubenzuron and Bacillus thuringiensis were the most efficient control agents against the pest.
