Abstract:Results are here given of two years experiments in the control of the corn borer. It appears that the infestation is somewhat lighter this season than in 1928 which is probably due to late planting and a poor stand of corn. Plowing as a means of disposing of corn refuse has given very satisfactory results in reducing the infestation. This is illustrated by the results of a two-year survey in the Eden Valley section where clean up measures are practiced. Experiments with insecticides indicate that this is a possible means of combating the insect. Calcium fluosilicate appears effective against the young larvae. White oil emulsion also offers promise when used with aresnate of lead. Various dusts have been tried but have not given an appreciable reduction in infestation.
