Abstract:On August 8, 1930, the moth Ephestia elutetla Hübner was, for the first time in the United States, found infesting stored leaf tobacco in a small number of warehouses in Richmond, Va. While the insect is cosmopolitan in distribution and has been reported as feeding upon a wide range of agricultural products including tobacco, its presence in Richmond in destructive numbers has stirred the tobacco industry to prompt action looking toward effective control.
