Acid lead arsenate has been found to be effective in controlling the larvae of the Japanese beetle and those of the native white grubs. The authors have made a thorough investigation of the effects of this material on the germination and development of evergreen seedlings. Applied up to 1,500 pounds per acre it has little effect on the germination of the seeds but the rate of growth of most of the seedlings tested was significantly retarded. It is concluded that the application of acid lead arsenate to beds of seedling evergreens is undesirable until further investigation has developed a method of using the material without danger to the plants.
