Spraying experiments in southwestern Michigan indicate that several summer brood sprays of lead arsenate may be necessary to satisfactorily control codling moth. Sprays of oil with nicotine sulphate gave good results on an early variety, but were less satisfactory on later varieties. In all cases where oil with nicotine was used in the summer brood sprays, the arsenical residue on the fruit was greatly reduced. Oil sprays, where used alone for the summer brood larvae, were ineffective. Some oils, when used in combination with nicotine sulphate, may cause injury to the fruit.
