Thrash presents data that were collected from 232 tarnished plant bug insecticide efficacy trials across the Midsouth from 2005 to present. The percent control provided by each insecticide was analyzed to determine which products provided the greatest control of tarnished plant bugs and whether efficacy changed over time. These data were also used to determine the amount of residual control that certain insecticides provided and whether there were any regional differences in insecticide efficacy.
