There seems to be no doubt but that sulphur-lime has ordinarily been a most efficient scalecide. In the arid region at Wawawai, Washington, Piper twelve years ago was able to announce complete destruction of the San José scale in one to two weeks after the application. Similar quick results have been observed in recent years with scales from Wenatchee. On the other hand, this insect is becoming increasingly prevalent in some of the older fruit sections of Washington, notably at Clarkston, and a critical investigation shows that not only are the scales slow to succumb to the effects of sulphur-lime but that there is a pronounced and great individual difference, many scales manifesting even a complete immunity to this insecticide.
