Abstract:The box leaf miner, Monarthropulpus buxi (Diptera, Itonidida) injuries has resulted in a reduced demand for certain varieties of boxwood. A series of experiments indicate limited usefulness for the molasses spray and very satisfactory results were obtained with a heavy emulsifying petroleum oil, 1-20, and a pint of Black Leaf 40 to 50 gallons of spray, making one or two applications.
