Abstract:A blend of various fractions of steam-distilled pine oils was found to be effective in field applications against hibernating codling moth larvae (Carpocapsa pomonella) when brushed liberally upon the rough bark, crotches, pruning wounds, and cankers of apple trees. The applications produced marked reduction in the amount of first brood codling moth injury in the treated blocks, without injury to the trees. Fruit counts at harvest indicated that the initial advantage gained by the treatment will produce the greatest benefit when large areas are treated at the same time, and followed by the recommended codling moth cover sprays.
