Effective November 17, 1938.

BUREAU OF ENTOMOLOGY AND PLANT QUARANTINE


MODIFICATION OF PINK BOLLWORM QUARANTINE REGULATIONS


INTRODUCTORY NOTE

The following revision adds to the lightly infested area that* part of Pinal County in Arizona not heretofore within the regulated area, all of Maricopa County in Arizona, and the Texas counties of Brooks, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, and Nueces. This action is taken with respect to all counties, except Kenedy, owing to the recent finding of light infestations of the pink bollworm of cotton. Kenedy County is included in the regulated area because there are no facilities in that county for ginning the small acreage of cotton grown therein which is normally ginned in the regulated area.

Chief, Bureau of Enitomology and Plant Quarantiutc.
