Effective February 12. 1941.
CHAPTER III-BUREAU OF ENTOMOLOGY AND PLANT
PART 301-DOMESTIC QUARANTINE NOTICES
JAPANESE BEETLE QUARANTINE
The current revision of the Japanese beetle quarantine adds a proviso under
which the Chief of the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine may, when
the facts as to pest risk so warrant, modify the requirements, by making them
less stringent, as to one or more of the restricted articles, or as to certain
periods of the year, or certain parts of the regulated areas.
In the revision of the regulations nominal extensions of regulated areas are
made in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Counties newly added in part or in entirety include Cayuga in New York;
Crawford and Forest in Pennsylvania; Greensville and Rappahannock in Vir-
ginia; and Marshall in West Virginia. The cities of Petersburg and Winchester,
in Virginia, are also brought under regulation. Discovery of substantial
infestations of the Japanese beetle in these sections warranted their addition
to the regulated areas. Additional enlargements of the regulated areas have
been made to include the entire Maryland counties of Baltimore, Howard,
Montgomery, and Wicomico, and additional areas in the counties of Carroll,
Charles, Dorchester, Frederick, and Washington; the entire Pennsylvania
counties of Butler, Venango, and Warren, and parts of Erie and Mercer
Counties; additional area in Chesterfield County, Va.; and all of Ohio County
in West Virginia.
The area from which the movement of fruits and vegetables is regulated
(sec. 301.48-5) has been extended to include additional areas in Baltimore
and Howard Counties, Md.; and Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, and York Coun-
ties, Pa. r and to bring in part of Cumberland County, Pa. The metropolitan
New York localities and adjoining area in Fairfield County, Conn., are no longer
Included in this area.
Previous quarantine regulations required a certificate or permit for move-
ment of fruits and vegetables from the area designated in section 301.48-5
to several isolated points in Maine, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont,
and West Virginia. This requirement as related to isolated points has bWen
removed with the exception that a certificate is required for such movement
to Toledo, Ohio, and Winchester, Va.. when consigned via refrigerator car
or motortruck, or in lot shipments of three pieces or more by common carrier.
This section has been further revised to remove the exemption in regard to
bananas. Bananas in any form moving from the area designated in section
801.48-5 via refrigerator car, or motortruck, or by common carrier in lot ship-
ments of three pieces or more, require certification during the period sptiifled.
Current regulations require that refrigerator cars originating it the urea
designated in section 801.48-5 into which fruits or vegetables are to be loaded
for interstate movement from any regulated area must be swept, cleaned. or
fumigated by the common carrier prior to loading, and if used for loading
fruits and vegetables In the area designated in that section, such ctnrs nnwst
also be kept tightly closed and sealed during the Interval btetwee-n fitniga ting
or cleaning and loading. Fruits and vegetables consigned from the areat' desig-
nated In section 801.48-5 by refrigerator car, must 1w fuitiligaittl in ti ecar,
when such action is deemed necessary by the Inslpetor, and doors and hatcires
of the cars must be closed or screened.
Minor changes have also been made In wectlons 801.48-6. 7T. 10. 12, and 13.
This revision supersedes the twelfth revision of Notice of Quarantine No. 48,
2 BUREAU OF ENTOMOLOGY AND PLANT QUARANTINE
approved March 1, 19.17, and the seventeenth revision of the rules and regula-
tions supplemental thereto, is amended effective May 27, 1940.
Unless a certificatee has been issued, these regulations, as now revised, pro-
hibit the interstate movement between June 15 and October 15 (between
June 1 and (k-tolber 15 in tilhe Case of Accomac and Northampton Counties,
Va.) of all fruits and vegetables by refrigerator car, motortruck, or in lot
shipments of three pieces or more by common carrier, from the District of
Columbia, the State of Delaware, and parts of Maryland, New Jersey, Penn-
sylvania, and Virginia. as declined in section 301.48-5, to or through points
outside the regulated areas as defined in section 301.48-3.
The regulations also priihibit the interstate shipment of plants, sand, soil,
earth, p'at, compost, and( manure from any part of the regulated areas to
or through any outside point throughout the year unless a Federal permit
or certificate has been secured. Cut flowers are restricted interstate move-
ment only between June 15 and October 15, inclusive. For details and excep-
tions see sections 301.49-6 and 7.
The regulated areas include the District of Columbia, the entire States of
Connect'icut. Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Rhode Island, and parts
of Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont,
Virginia, and West Virginia, as described in section 301.48-3.
These regulations also specify the conditions governing the protection of
restricted articles from infestation while in transit (sec. 301.48-8), require
thorough cleaning of vehicles, containers, and refrigerator cars which have
been used in transporting restricted products (sees. 301.48-5 and 13), and
provide other safeguards and conditions as specified in the regulations.
To secure permits and certificates, address the Bureau of Entomology and
Plant Quarantine, 266 Glenwood Avenue, Bloomfield, N. J., or the Dearest

(b) Conditions governing the issuance of certificates and permits.-For the
purpose of certification of nursery and ornamental stock, nurseries, greenhouses,
and other premises concerned in the movement of such stock will be classified
(1) Class I.-Nurseries, greenhouses, and other premises concerned in the
movement of nursery and ornamental stock on or within approximately 509 feet
of which no infestation has been found may be classified as class I. Upon com-
pliance with the requirements of paragraph (b) (7) of this section nursery and
ornamental stock may be certified by the inspector for shipment from such
premises without further inspection, and without meeting the safeguards pre-
scribed as a condition of interstate shipment of plants originating in nurseries or
greenhouses of class III.
(2) Class III.-(i) Nurseries, greenhouses, and other premises concerned in
the movement of nursery and ornamental stock on which either grubs in the soil
or one or more beetles have been found, will be classified as class III, provided (a)
there are maintained on the premises subdivided class I areas, certified houses,
frames, or plots or other certified areas, or (b) there is a legitimate need for
interstate or intradealer certification of such stock. Such classification will not
be granted to nurseries, greenhouses, and other preramis'es that do not maintain
certified or subdivided areas and require only infrequent certification. Such
classification also may be given to nurseries, etc., where one or more beetles
or grubs are found in the immediate proximity (within approximately 500 feet)
of such nurseries', etc., on adjacent property or properties. In the case of nursery
properties under single ownership and management but represented by parcels of
land widely separated, such parcels may be independently classified either as
class I or class III upon compliance with such conditions and safeguards as shall
be required by the inspector. Similarly, unit nursery properties, which would
otherwise fall in class III, may be open to subdivision, for the purpose of rating
such subdivisions in classes I or III, when in the judgment of the inspector such
action is warranted by scanty infestation limited to a portion of the nursery
concerned: Provided, That the subdivision containing the infestation shall be
clearly marked by boundaries of a permanent nature which shall be aplproxi-
mately 500 feet beyond the point where the infestation occurs.
(ii) Upon compliance with paragraphs (b) (3), (6), and (7) of this section.
