In the search for organic compounds which might replace the arsenicals now commonly employed for the control of the codling moth, Carpocapsa pomonella L., p-iodonitrobenzene was found by Smith, Siegler & Munger (1936) to have high initial toxicity. As a result of the effectiveness of this compound a study has been made of the toxicity of the halogenated benzenes, nitrobenzene and the three isomeric monohalogenated nitrobenzenes, dihalogenated (except difluoro) benzenes and dinitrobenzenes.
