Field tests from 1957-1960 for control of the grape berry moth, Paralobesia viteana (Clemens) included a spray schedule of two sprays for the first brood and one for the second. The first application was made soon after the berries set, the second 10 days later and the final spray in August. Sprays of parathion, Guthion® (O,O-dimethyl-S-4-oxo-1,2,3-benzotriazin-3-( 4-H)- ylmethyl phosphordithioate), Diazinon® (O,O-diethyl O-(2- isoprophyl-6-methyl-4-pyrimidyl) thiophosphate), and Sevin® (1-naphthyl N-methylcarbamate) were as effective as the standard DDT. DDT in the final spray in August is likely to leave excessive spray deposits on the fruit at harvest. Insecticides that may be substituted for DDT in the final spray are: parathion, methoxychlor, Diazinon, Sevin and Guthion. These insecticides applied in a split program with DDT arc equally as effective as a straight schedule of DDT and the residue on the fruit at harvest is well within the legal tolerance.
