Abstract

Phytocides used in this experiment had different effects upon the ugly-nest caterpillar, Archips cerasivoranus, infected by the Microsporidia Nosema cerasivoranus. Foliage juices of certain plants, when placed on cherry foliage being used as food for the insect, apparently prolonged life at the larval and pupal stages, and in certain cases promoted the formation of twice as many pupae; certain other foliage juices had no effect.
