Abstract:Unsupported statements that immersion of narcissus bulbs in water kept at a temperature of 110º to 111ºF. for three hours would be fatal to bulb flies and bulb mites induced experimental work to determine the effectiveness. The trials gave satisfactory evidence that these statements were true and indicated that a much shorter time was required to obtain a complete mortality of the larvae of the two bulb flies and also of the bulb mites.
