Results are presented of tests of sprays for the control of the locust borer (Cyllene Robiniae Forst.), particularly on shade trees and in small plantations. Attention was paid to the effects of the sprays on the vegetation surrounding the bases of the trees as well as on the stems. Emulsions containing sodium arsenite, pine-tar oil and paradichlorobenzene, and orthodichlorobenzene were found to give a high degree of control when applied in the early spring while the young borers were present between the bark and wood. Later applications, after the larvae had penetrated the wood, were not so successful. The cost of application was found to be such as to make it feasible to protect shade trees and possibly trees in small plantations. As a preface to this paper, a brief resume of literature is given of the work done by other entomologists during the past twenty-five years to control this borer.
