The work with Laspeyresia molesta was conducted as in preceding years,placing emphasis on the attractiveness of solutions of syrups of different brands and sugar content,also continuing studies of molasses-sodium arsenite baits.Weekly collections of oriental fruit moth from thirty different baits are summarized.A number of other economic insects were attracted to baits but none,except possibly fruit flies and Noctuidae,in numbers sufficient to reduce the population.Baited blocks did not show reduction of oriental fruit moth injury.
