The use of cryolite and lead arsenate for the control of early season infestations of omnivorous leaf roller on grapes has many advantages and a great potential. It is estimated that during a year of light to moderate population, one or two early season applications of cryolite or lead arsenate may provide effective and economical control of OLR throughout the season.
