Observations on the desert grasshopper, Trimerotropis pallidipennis pallidipennis in Arizona
Journal of Economic Entomology 53 (5), 721-724
Abstract: Populations of Trimerotropis pallidipennis pallidipennis were high in Arizona between 1936 and 1959, but only reached outbreak proportions in 1941 and 1958 when conditions, particularly rainfall, were most favourable. Migration from desert into cultivated land occurred, causing extensive damage to seedling cotton in 1958. Aircraft spraying with aldrin was an effective method of control.
