During the summers of 1971–73 in the Imperial and Palo Verde Valleys of southern California, insecticide applications based on a mean 3.5 to 4.0-moths/hexalurebaited trap showed a significant reduction in treatments and cost when compared to automatic 5 to 7-day spray scheduled programs for the control of Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders) in cotton. There was no significant difference between the 2 methods of control in regard to boll infestations or cotton yields.
