Abstract:Noncommercial fruit trees in the Wenas Valley, Washington, that might e hosts for Laspeyresia pomonella (L.) were located by through surveys in 1969 and 1970. About 2400, trees were removed during the spring and summer of 1970, and 19 of the 32 trees not removed were sprayed with diazinon 2 to 5 times. All the fruit on the 13 other trees was removed and destroyed. Populations of codling moths in the 4 commercial orchards in the valley were managed by programmed applications of pesticides. When fruit surveys and traps baited with virgin females were used to monitor the populations of codling moths in the valley, including the commercial orchards, the integrated-control program (sanitation and pesticides) was found to have reduced the population an estimated 96% in 1970.
