Field studies were conducted during 1958, 1959and 1960 to determine the effectiveness of several insecticides for the control of codling moth (Carpocapsa pomonella (L.)) in apple orchards which had had a high percentage of wormy fruit during the previous year. Sevin® (1-naphthyl N-methylcarbamate) at 1 pound of 50% wettable powder per 100 gallons of water or Guthion® (O,O- dimethyl S-4-oxo-1,2,3-benzotriazin-3-(4H)-ylmethyl phosphorodithioate) ar 0.75 pound gave excellent codling moth control. At a dosage of 1.5 pounds per 100 gallons of water both of these materials provided good control when the interval between sprays was extended from 21 to 28 days. Ethyl Guthion® (O,O- diethyl S-4-oxo-l,2,3-benzotriazin-8(4H)-ylmethyl phosphorodithioate) and Diazinon® (O,O-diethyl O-(2 isopropyl-6-methyl- 4-pyrimidyl) thiophosphate) were not consistently as effective as Sevin or Guthion. Control with ethion was good in 1958 and 1959 but was poor during 1960. Trithion® (S-(p-chlorophenylthio methyl)O,O-diethyl phosphorodithioate) gave good control but was phytotoxic to apples. Other materials which showed considerable promise for codling moth control were dimethoate, phosphamidon, Bayer 29493 (O,O-dimethyl O-[4-(methylthio)-m-tolyl] phosphorothioate), and Bayer 22408 (Naphthaloximido- O,O-diethyl phosphorothioate). The materials which did not provide adequate control with Ryania (ground stems of Ryania speciosa), were: Dilan (2-nitro 1,1-bis(p-chlorophenyl)propane and butane mixture (1: 2 ratio)), Kepone® (decachlorooctahydro-1,3,4-metheno-2H -cyclobuta [cd] pentalen-2-one), and DDT. The addition of either parathion or malathion to DDT resulted in good control.
