POTATO TUBER MOTH
Destructive Field Pest and Often Se
riously Injuries Stored Product
Under Favorable Conditions.
The potato tube' moth in mild, dry
.limates often works very serious in
jury to stored potatoes. It also is an
annoying and at times a destructive
field pest where careless planting and
hariresting, combined with proper cli
matic conditions, give it an opportu
nity to damage the growing plant.
The larva of the moth feeds to some
extent on the leaves, but does its
principal damage to the plant by
mining downward through the stem,
killing that section of the plant and
greatly reducing the leaf area. In
the case of the tuber in the ground
Dr stored, the larvae channel through
the flesh and either ruin the potato
and cause it to rot, or render it so
unsightly as to make it undesirable
Control of Tuber Moth.
The Bureau of Entomology, United
States Department of Agriculture, re
eently has published Professional Pa
per No. 427, The Potato Tuber Moth,
in which it recommendls two methods
of control to the potato grower and
handler. These are, according to J.
E. Graf, author of the bulletin, cu(
tural and harvesting methods which
midtimizedl damage andl the use of di
sulphid of carbon to fumigate stored
potatoes. The series of experiments
indicates that the following measures
in the field will d. much to mini
mize the (damage from this moth:
1. Plant as dleep as practicable (5
to 6 inches).
2. Use ridge culture--i. e., ridlge
1. Harvest as early as possible.
'1. Harvest before the potato tops

or you can eas
work on the tuber.
In harvesting the tubers several
rules must be followed to-keep/the
tubers from infestation:
1. The sacks should never be cov
ered with potato tops, as the larvae
leave these when they wilt and enter
2. The sacks should be sewed as
soon as possible and hauled from the
3. Potatoes should never be left in
the field or exposed to the moth over
4. All cull potatoes should be gath
ered up within two weeks and either
fed to stock at once or destroyed. If
left ni the field they are a menace to
the neighbors and to the grower him
self for the following crop.
After the potatoes are harvested
they should be marketed at once, un
less the grower has storage facilities
and is willing to take-the trouble to
treat the potatoes.
The destruction of potato vines af
ter harvest, while it kills all stages
of the insect within the vines, will
also kill the parasites which prey on
the moth. Destruction of the vines
would probably kill more of the para
sites than stages of the moth- since
the tuber worm is liable to hide un
der clods and rubbish, while most of
those parasitized remain in or on the
Fumigation of Stored Potatoes.
Experiments indicate that carbon
disulphid used at the rate of 2 pounds
to 1,000 cubic feet of storage space
will kill the larvae and adults and
practically all the pupae and eggs
within 48 hours. The potatoes are
placed in gas-tight bins, which easily
may be made nearly air-tight by lin
ing temporary structures with tarred
paper and painting the se'ms. The
carbon disulphid should be placed on
the top of the sacks in shallow tin
pans. The gas that it generates is
heavier than air and sinks through
the mass of potatoes. As carbon di
sulphid vapor is explosive when mix
ed with air and brought in contact
-with fire or sparks, or when heated
to a sufficiently high temperature,
great re should be exercised to keep
any spark or fire such as a lighted
cigar away ,from its neighborhood. If
tubers are noticeably infested, the
fumigation should be repeated in a
week in summer or two weeks in
Wherever possible, potat'oes should
be marketed as rapidly as polisible,
and infested tubers shouldI never be
stored unless they can be fumigated.
