About this book

Amongst the highlights of this book is its documentation of the application of dye impregnated baits against several species of fruit flies and the discussion of the applications of allelochemicals in light catalyzed toxic reactions.

Foote; mechanisms of cellular photomodification, Dennis Paul Vanenzeno and Merrill Tarr; safety of xanthene dyes according to the US Food and Drug Administration, Arthur L. Lipman; risk assessment - phloxine B and uranine insecticide application trials, D.A. Bergsten; impact of the Mediterranean fruit fly, ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), on California agriculture, Ted A. Batkin; light-activated toxicity of phloxine B and uranine to Mediterranean fruit fly, ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (diptera - tephritidae), adults, Nicanor J. Liquido et al; light-activated toxicity of phloxine B and fluorescein in methyleugenol to Oriental fruit fly, bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (diptera - tephritidae), males, Nicanor J. Liquido et al; development of phloxine B and uranine bait for control of Mexican fruit fly, Robert L. Mangan and Daniel S. Moreno; potential markets for the photoactivated pesticides, G.D. Pimprikar; the occurrence of photosensitizers among higher plants, Kelsey R. Downum and Jinghai Wen; fate of phototoxic terthiophene insecticides in organisms and the environment, J.T.
