Topical applications of 15 µg of tepa per moth induced a high degree of sterility in male and female codling moths, Carpocapsa pomonella (L.). The egg hatch was 1% when treated males were mated with untreated females, and 2.4% when treated females were mated with untreated males. Treatment of males had slight effect on vigor. Codling moth eggs, larvae, and pupae were injured or killed by substerilizing doses of tepa.
