Abstract:Blacklight-trap collections made from 1962 through 1964 showed that the decline of tobacco hornworm, Protoparce sexta (Johansson), populations on cigar-wrapper tobacco was related primarily to an early and short growing season. Each year moth populations were light during the growing season, while heavy populations occurred in August, after the crop had been harvested.
