In comparative tests of several kinds of untreated bands for capturing the larvae of the codling moth (Carpocapsa pomonella L.) at Yakima, Wash., a paper-burlap band proved equal or superior to one of burlap, which is customarily used, and is much less expensive. Heavy roofing paper and light crêpe paper were the least effective of the banding materials. In an unsprayed block in 1927, bands averaged from 167 to 258 larvae per band for the season. In 1928 in another unsprayed orchard, bands averaged from 336 to 1,322 larvae per band for the period July 10 to November 14.
