In spring and summer hydraulic spray treatments appreciable differences in European pine shoot moth (Rhyacionia buoliana (Schiffermüller)) mortality were noted when 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 pound (per 100 gallon) dosages of DDT, methoxychlor, Sevin® (1-naphthyl-N-methylearbamate) and American Cyanamid SF60 (malathion plus sticker) were used. Excellent control was obtained with 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 pounds of dimethoate in both spring and summer treatments. Both DDT and methoxychlor proved noticeably less effective in summer than in spring applications, while the opposite was true for Sevin.
