Aerial sprays oE thickened cue-lure + 5% naled applied at rates of 0.8, 2.0, 3.4, 8.5 lb of formulation/mile2 reduced populations of the male of Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett by 92, 97, 93, and 95%, respectively, for 11–15 days in a 4-mi2 plot. Replicated small-plot tests (3–30 treated leaves/site) showed that small volumes of formulation at a site had reduced effectiveness. Small-plot data also demonstrated that toxicity was lost before attraction at sites treated with small volumes of formulation. However, in terms of number killed per unit of lure, numerous small deposits are more efficient initially than fewer large ones.
