Tests with Various Chemicals for the Control of White Grubs in Forest Nurseries of the Carolinas
Abstract:In 1934 investigations were begun in an attempt to develop a satisfactory means of controlling white grubs (Phyllophaga spp.) in forest nurseries of the Southeast. These preliminary experiments centered around the use of acid lead arsenate as a soil poison, but they revealed almost immediately that this chemical is too injurious to pine seedlings to be used in forest nurseries. In later tests however, certain other chemicals were found to be more satisfactory. Carbon disulfide gave better results tban any of the other materials tested.
