February soil injection and soil drenching with soluble concentrate oxydemetonmethyl and soil injection with granular aldicarb and April application of foliar sprays of exydemetonmethyl gave excellent control of Myzus persicae (Sulzer) on peaches. April applications of soil treatments were not as effective. No residues of oxydemetonmethyl were detected in harvest peaches or apricots treated by foliar application or in peaches treated with the soil drench application. However, residues of oxydemetonmethyl were detected in apricots from the soil drench application and in peaches and apricots from the soil injection application.
