Abstract:The work in southern Indiana with baits for the oriental fruit moth (Laspeyresia Molesta Busck) has thus far been of a preliminary nature but the results point to certain possibilities. Various aromatic chemicals when used in solutions of blackstrap molasses or granulated sugar gave good catches. Boiled peach juice shows promise. The use of a screen of 1/4-inch mesh over the mouth of the bait promises to make these traps more efficient.
