Abstract:The Moorestown, New Jersey station of the U. S. Bureau of Entomology commenced work on the mass production and distribution of M. ancylivorus in 1929 and increased the efforts on this problem in 1930. Adults were produced in large numbers and successfully shipped and liberated in 86 colonies in 13 states. Preliminary recovery collections indicate positive recoveries from slightly less than one-half of the colonies liberated.
