Washington, D. C,


BE.P.Q, 495 April 7, 1937

See, 301.64b-Administrative Instructions -
Relating to the Mexican fruitfly
quarantine, requiring sterilization of
all grapefruit'harvested on arid after
April 12, 1939, and extending the har-
vesting season 6n grapefruit to the
close of May 15, 1939

Under authorization vested in the Chief of the Bureau of
Entomology and Plant Quarantine in the third proviso ef Notice of
Quarantine No. 64,revised (See. 301.64), it is liereby required, aA
provided in paragraph (e) of Regulation 6 thereto (Sec. 301.64-6),
that all grapefruit harvested on and'after April 12, 1939, in the
area regulated under said quarantine, shall be sterilized under
approved methods as a condition of issuance of permits for movement
of such fruit from the regulated area.

Section A, Regulation 7 (See. 301.64-7) of said quarantine is
also hereb-y modified tO extend the harvesting season for grapefruit
to the close of May 15,*1939. The host-free period for grapefruit,
undef this modification, will begin May 16 and continue to August 31,
1939, inclusive. (B.E.P.Q. 487, dated January 27,'1939, extends the
harvesting season for Valencia oranges to June 15, 1939.)

Sterilization of grapefruit has been found necessary to insure
against dissemination of Lexican fruitflies, due to the occurrence of
such flies in tho regulated area. The extension of thc. harvesting
season, it has been determined, may be safel- r. de without increasing
the risk of spread of the Mexica fruitflies since stcriliziticn ill
render grapcfruit saf6 for movement from the regulated area. (ccc.
