Abstract:Bands placed around peach trees in spring caught an average of 2.2 Oriental Fruit Moth larvae per band up to the time of Elberta harvest. Bands placed on Krummel's October and Heath Cling peach trees after Elberta harvest caught from 6 to 151 larvae per band for the rest of the season. An interesting larval habit in connection with banding is discussed.
Paradichlorobenzene showed poor results in grower made treatments in 1928. Tests by the author in 1929 gave a kill of from 70% to 90%.
