On the basis of field studies and experiments, under conditions where codling moth, Carpocapsa pomonella Linn., normally infests 100% of all the fruit borne by unsprayed trees, it has been found that codling moth infestation, under arsenical treatments, varies, within limits, inversely as the amount of lead arsenate per tree per treatment, inversely as the maintenance of coating during the periods of entry by larvae of the first and of the second broods, inversely as the combined factors of lead arsenate and maintenance, and directly as the concentration of infestation.
