Abstract:During the years 1920 to 1928, inclusive, studies were made to determine the toxicity of many materials to newly hatched codling moth (Carpocapsa pomonella L.) larvae. Numerous tests were made in a rather hasty survey for a possible arsenical substitute with the idea of helping to develop a poison which could be used in a practical way and which would not be objectionable on fruit at harvest. Although no chemical was found which could substitute for lead arsenate in a practical way, several materials were strongly toxic to codling moth larvae.
