Losses from the feeding of the striped cucumber beetle, Diabrotica vittata (F.), and the cucurbit wilt that such feeding spreads are the limiting factors in profitable production of melons and cucumbers in Indiana. During the past season many growers reported as high as 50 to 75 per cent of their crops destroyed, even with the use of some control measure. In order to offer the growers more satisfactory remedies, studies on the control of the beetle and of wilt have been conducted over a period of years. Results obtained in 1935 have been published and showed that the more promising mixtures were those containing calcium arsenate and various copper oxychlorides. Investigations have been continued, and this article reports results obtained in 1937 and 1938. Climatic conditions in 1936 made plant growth irregular, and tests were dropped early in that season.
