Abstract

Recent experiments have shown that most of the local insect pests of tobacco can be controlled by DDT either as a 0.1% spray or as a 2% dust. The insects commonly found attacking: tobacco plants in South-Western Australia are the leaf miner, the stem borer (budworm), cutworms, loopers, grasshoppers and wireworms. Minor damage is also caused by a variety of beetles and other insects.
