Abstract:Injury by the carrot rust fly, Psila rosae, may be prevented or greatly reduced by regulating the planting and harvesting dates so that the growing period falls in the interval between the first and second broods of the insect.
This maggot-free period may be further extended by repeated applications of naphthalene, commencing when the flies of the second generation begin to appear and continuing to approximately one month of the proposed harvesting date.
