Lambda-cyhalothrin, a pyrethroid insecticide with contact and stomach action, offering rapid knockdown and long residual activity, is valued for its broad-spectrum control that includes plant sucking bugs (e.g. aphids), beetle adults, and larvae and leaf eating lepidoptera. It is used as a foliar spray on potato (Solanum tubersoum) in many countries for control of aphids such as Myzus persicae (peach-potato aphid) and Macrosiphum euphoriae (potato aphid). These aphids rarely cause terminal damage to mature plants through physical damage and solute removal, but carry and transmit a wide range of plant pathogenic viruses spread rapidly from plant to plant and field to field by the winged aphid forms.
