Experimental fumigation of citrus with ethylene dibromide (EDB) for two hours at a dosage rate of up to 20 mg/litre, was found to be inadequate for a complete kill of all stages of the false codling moth. For this reason, combinations of EDB fumigation and cold storage were tested, resulting in the development of a successful schedule consisting of a 2-hour fumigation with EDB at 16 mg/litre followed by cold storage for 18 days at 4,4 ï¿½ 0,5ï¿½C.
