Abstract:Damage to the figs is caused by periodic settling of swarms of moths on the fruit and souring of the figs as a result. A number of poison baits and repellents were tested out. Several poison baits gave promise of considerable success in the control of this pest. Repellents were not as effective. Experiments showed the time of greatest feeding of the moths to be just before dark.
