Since the opening of this project in June 1926 frequent trips have been made to this valley for the purpose of determining the breeding habits of Hippelates pusio, a very annoying and abundant insect. Although a careful study has been made of many situations, its source still remains a mystery. Due to the very high summer temperatures of this dry region the lack of suitable laboratory facilities has proved a distinct handicap. With funds voted by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors an adobe laboratory suitable for desert investigations has now been built for this project, and funds for maintenance will be provided by an abatement district.
