Nichols, L.E. (1948) Codling moth control experiments, 1945-47. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 5 (2). pp. 61-76.



Experiments carried out in the Stanthorpe district in the 1945-47 seasons for the control of codling moth in apples are described. In these experiments DDT, benzene hexachloride and zinc fluoarsenate were tested officially for the first time. Additional impetus was given to the investigation by the advent of the new insecticide DDT and much work centred round the trials of this material as a cover spray.
