Description: Small aluminum "boats" containing cotton saturated with lindane were glued to elytra of female red oak borers and locust borers and the beetles released into cages or onto trees. Males attempting to mate with booby-trapped females contacted the insecticide and died. However, females also became contaminated in mating attempts and soon died.
Keywords: red oak borer, locust borer, insecticide
