Abstract:Two experiments using 10 field plots in Barnwell County, S. C., were conducted to determine the effect of cultivation on emergence of eye gnats. In Experiment 1, 2247 Hippelates were trapped on plowed and 17 Hippelates on unplowed plots. In Experiment 2, 1761 Hippelates were trapped on plowed and 74 on unplowed plots. The same 4 species were trapped in both experiments. They were H. pusio Loew, H. pusio variant, H. bishoppi Sabrosky, and H. dissidens (Tucker). The numbers of each species trapped of Hippelates, except H. dissidens in Experiment 2, increased significantly as a result of plowing.
