Mendel, Z., & Rosenberg, U. 1988 Trials to control Matsucoccus josephi (Homoptera: Margarodidae) with fenoxycarb.. Journal of Economic Entomology 81(4): 1143-1147.

Notes: Abstract: Effects of fenoxycarb, insect growth regulator, studied on 3-year-old artificially infested seedlings of Pinus halepensis & P. brutia in greenhouses and on naturally infected 10-year-old P. halepensis; treatments arrested development of first and second instars before moulting, reduced rate of crawler settlement, and caused 98% mortality when sprayed on settled 2-week old larvae; fenoxycarb may serve as an efficient population management agent of M. josephi by preventing development of acute injury to P. halepensis.
