Abstract:On the basis of these tests, if lead arsenate is to be used as a spray for killing the adults it should be applied at the rate of 6 pounds per 50 gallons of water. The practicability of controlling the adults with a stomach poison is not proved, however. Field studies show the beetles to be exceedingly active in running about over the branches and main trunks of trees and in flying from tree to tree. Even if all the trees in an orchard were sprayed it would not prevent beetles from flying in and ovipositing on the trees.
