The cranberry root worm (Rhabdopterus picipes Oliv.), a common insect on cran- berry bogs, has become recently an important enemy of the cultivated blueberry. An outline of the life history and habits of the larvae and adults is given. Experiments with sodium fluosilicate used against the adult failed to give a satisfactory kill. Experiments with both the dust and granular calcium cyanide used against the adults indicate that the insect can be controlled with the granular calcium cyanide.
