Chemically treated bands were tested during three successive seasons. In spite of severe infestations, the increase in the wormy (Carpocapsa pomonella L.) fruit was only 72.5 per cent in the banded block, as compared with 204 per cent in two blocks not banded but sprayed the same. It was estimated that an average of about 50 per cent of the worms leaving the fruit were caught in the bands.
