Abstract:Known numbers of Curculio caryae (Horn) larvae were placed in cages containing soil treated with drin at a rate of 10 Ib actual ingredient per acre. Weevils later emerged as adults but had shortened life. Additional tests with caged weevils in cultivated and unbroken soil showed that condition of soil did not cause any significant difference in total adult emergence, Maximum emergence occurred in late August and early September.
