Abstract:Two years of experimental work in the Pacific Northwest indicates that a combination of oil and nicotine may have an important place in the apple spray program. Satisfactory and,in most cases,economical control of codling moth,Carpocapsa pomonella,as well as the other more important apple insects present has been obtained.The spray residue problem was considerably simplified and the grade of fruit was frequently raised as a result of the use of this spray combination.
