Lures were placed on the ground and 2 and 5 feet above ground to evaluate the effect on the response of melon flies, Dacus cucurbitae CoquiIlett. Cue-lure and ENT 31812 (4- (p-hydroxyphenyl) -2-butanone) were at least as attractive at ground level as at the higher levels, an indication that aerial applications of the lures, which fall to the ground, would be fully effective in programs of male annihilation against the melon fly. Cue-lure proved more attractive than ENT-31812, and naled provided more rapid knockdown than fenthion.
