The distance that larvae of the primary screwworm, Cochliomyia americana C. and P., will migrate from the place where they have dropped to the ground and the depth at which they pupate in the soil were studied under field conditions during the fall of 1935 and the spring of 1936 at Valdosta, Ga. These tests were conducted to determine the advisability of further studies on methods of control for larvae and pupae of the screwworm in carcasses of animals or in the soil near infested animals. Tests on methods of controlling larvae and pupae in the soil and carcass have been conducted by Brody & Knipling (1940).
