Larry Arrington, Dean Introduction Management of insect pests of peanut in Florida occasionally requires the use of insecticides. This publication was prepared to provide the user with a summary of available insecticide options for the major insects pests which may be encountered. For more information on peanut insect pests, see ENY403, Insect Management in Peanuts (http://EDIS.IFAS.UFL.EDU/IG062) and ENY668, Identification and Monitoring of Insect Pests in Peanut (http://EDIS.IFAS.UFL.EDU/IN176). Treatment Thresholds If the average number of foliage pests or the peg-pod-root feeding pests in a field exceeds the thresholds given below, then one of the chemical treatments listed on the following tables is usually justified. Foliage Feeders (Fall armyworms, corn earworms, beet armyworms and loopers) Early Season: 3-4/foot of row (before the plants meet in the middle) Late Season: 5-6/foot of row (after plants have completely covered the middle) Peg-Pod Feeders (Lesser cornstalk borer, southern corn rootworm and wireworms) Before Pegging: 10% of the plants with larvae After Pegging: 15% of the plants with larvae Treatment for cutworms is usually justified if their feeding has resulted in 20% or more foliage loss. Restrictions Many of the pesticides listed on the following tables have additional restrictions on the maximum number of applications per season, the frequency of application or the maximum amount of the pesticide that may be applied on the crop per season. Before using any of the pesticides listed in the following tables, be sure to read and follow all instructions and precautions listed on the pesticide labels.

Do not apply more than 13.3 lbs. formulation/acre/application or 26.6 lbs. per season. Refer to the label for ounces/1000 ft of row based on row spacing and band-width. 4Application to wet foliage during periods of high humidity may cause injury to tender foliage. 5Adults only. 6Maximum of 1 application/year. At temperatures greater than 90oF with high humidity, some leaf phytotoxicity may occur. 7May also be used as a dry powder "planter box" treatment at a rate of 4 oz/100 lb of seed. See label directions for mixing procedure to insure adequate seed coverage.
