Abstract:The rose stem girdler, Argilus rubicola communis Obenberger, has been an important pest of raspberries near Salt Lake City, Utah, since 1955. Injury often exceeds 90% destruction of susceptible canes. Control can be achieved through a combination of pl'l\l1ingplus burning before the adults leave the canes, followed by an insecticide treatment applied during the early part of the adult flight. Control ranging from 90 to 99% can be obtained through these combination treatments.
