Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted in Arizona during 1961 to gauge the effectiveness of a Rhodesgrass scale parasite in combating Neodusmetia sangwani. Details methods and materials used during the study, stating that "infested stems collected in March were placed in 12-dram vials, and the tops were covered with fine nylon cloth." Notes that "by early April the infestation was so light the study could not be continued." Provides a table illustrating "the rate and development of Neodusmetia sangwani in field-collected Antonia graminis adults held at 3 constant temperatures." Explains that the rate "appears to be linear." Concludes that "the life cycle studies provided...[researchers with] the information as to when the adults would emerge." Mentions that parasitized material was distributed to Rhodesgrass scale infestations in Arizona's Yuma and Pinal counties, and that a single parasite was obtained from a sample of scale-infested grass collected in Yuma.
