The ovicidal properties of various vegetable, animal,
and mineral oils were tested in an effort to develop
a supplementary method of control for the codling moth
and the oriental fruit moth. The reasons for undertaking
this problem are twofold: first, the codling moth has become
exceedingly difficult to hold in check; and, second,
in the case of the oriental fruit moth there is no satisfactory
method of control. The studies could be carried
on with both insects because they are very closely related
and also, because the oriental fruit moth is a pest
of apples as well as peaches.
