Experiments with a number of compounds for the control of the cabbage maggot, Chortephila brassicae for a period of eight years have shown that considerable latitude in the use of corrosive sublimate is allowable and that even under adverse weather conditions there is no necessity of applying the treatment until several days after the flies appear. It has also been demonstrated that the application remains effective for some time; the same is true of treatments with creosote or anthracene oil dust, though not to the same extent.
