Observations on the life history and control of the vine weevil on cyclamen and foliage plants

, : Observations on the life history and control of the vine weevil on cyclamen and foliage plants. Jour Roy Hort Soc 85(3): 123-128

Severe damage by vine weevil larvae to cyclamen and foliage plants on a commercial holding led to observations being made on this insect's life-history and host range under glass. Good protection against larval damage to cyclamen was obtained by the addition of 3 oz. of a 1 1/4% aldrin dust (1.06 g actual aldrin) or 4 oz. of a 1 1/2% dieldrin dust (1.70 g actual dieldrin) to each bushel of the potting compost as it was made up or well mixed in afterwards; this appeared to give protection against larvae for 6 -8 months. Numbers of adults were greatly reduced by parathion smokes, and where non-bulbous plants were already infested by larvae, a 0.1% gamma BHC drench (3/4 pint of 10% emulsion to 100 gals. water) gave a good kill.

Motor seizures elicited by isonicotinehydrazide (INH) were studied in 188 male albino rats aged from 5 days to adulthood. INH was found to be able to induce both minimal, predominantly clonic, and major, i.e. generalized, tonic-clonic seizures dur...

Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-7 is a potent bone-inducing factor and was shown to promote periodontal regeneration in vivo and in vitro; however, to our knowledge, the specific effect of BMP-7 on cementoblasts has not been defined. We aimed to...
