In vitro effect on the antioxidative properties of crude extract of Chenopodium album in presence of the organophosphate, acephate. Int.
Organophosphates: 0.05 mg [kg.sup.-1] for the insecticides acephate, cadusafos, chlorpyrifos, dimethoate, disulfoton, ethion, fenitrothion, phorate, malathion, methidathion, monocrotophos, parathionmethyl and triazophos; and 0.1 mg [kg.sup.-1] for methamidophos.
Although, recently various insecticides, like profeophos, triapophos, carbaryl, thiodicarb, buprofezin and acephate have been recommended for the management of mealybug (Dhawan et al., 2009; Nikam et al., 2010; Patel et al., 2010; Rashid et al., 2011) but it is difficult to achieve perfect control of mealybugs with conventional insecticides due to waxy material which covers the bodies of adult females (Rao and David, 1958; Dean et al., 1971).
Two pesticides, acephate (Orthene 75S) and carbaryl (Sevin 50WP), are among those recommended for use in Tennessee for control of insect pests on snapbeans (Yanes et al., 1986).

* The Environmental Protection Agency considers seven of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton in 2000 in the United States as "possible", "likely", "probable" or "known" human carcinogens (acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos and trifluralin).
Similar results were obtained when Clark & Rattner (1987) dosed little brown myotis with acephate. These data imply that exposure to non-lethal doses could result in death in the field when bats that have become debilitated are exposed to high risk situations such as predators, harsh sun, inclement weather, or drowning (Clark 1986).
insecticide offerings include malathion, chlorpyrifos, dimethoate, methyl parathion and acephate.
