PINK BOLLWORM QUARANTINE

Quarantine No. 52

REVISION OF QUARANTINE AND REGULATIONS


INTRODUCTORY NOTE
The following revision of the pink bollworm quarantine and regulations is issued primarily to clarify the requirements by some rearrangement of the subject matter of the various restrictions. To meet the need for a more flexible means of administering certain requirements, particularly those of a special nature such as may relate to only part of a regulated area, or a limited period of the year, administrative instructions, circulars of the B. E. P. Q. series, will be employed. The Chief of the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine has accordingly been authorized in the notice of quarantine to modify by administrative instructions restrictions in accordance with the facts as to pest risk.
No change has been made in the.regulated areas in this revision.
The section numbers which appear in this document agree with the section numbers in the Code of Federal Regulations now in process of publication.
SUMMARY
The regulated areas are defined in regulation 2 of this issue of the regulations. Regulation 3 sets forth the restricted articles, classed as to those which are prohibited interstate movement from the regulated areas and those which may be authorized to be so moved. Regulations 4 to 10, inclusive, set forth such requirements as the conditions of certification of the various restricted articles, while regulation 11 gives the marking and labeling requirements. Definitions of the various terms are given, as heretofore, in regulation 1. Arrangements for obtaining certificates or permits may be made with the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine, P. 0. Box 798, or Room 565 Federal Building, San Antonio, Tex.

Acting Chief, Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine.

(Approved Much 7,1939; effective March 15,1939)
I, H. A. Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, have determined that it is necessary to quarantine the States of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas to prevent the spread .of infestation of the pink bollworm (Pectinophora gossypiella Saunders), a dangerous insect new to and not heretofore widely prevalent or distributed within and throughout the United States.
Now, therefore, under the authority of section 8 of the Plant Quarantine Act of August 20, 1912 (37 Stat. 315), as amended, I do quarantine the said States of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and do order that (1) cotton, wild cotton, including all parts of either cotton or wild cotton plants, seed cotton, cotton .1int, linters, and all other forms of unmanufactured cotton fiber, gin waste, cottonseed, cottonseed hulls, cottonseed cake, and meal; (2) bagging and other containers and wrappers of cotton and cotton products; (3) railway cars, boats, and other vehicles which have been used in conveying cotton or cotton products or .which are fouled with such products; (4) farm products, farm household goods, farm equipment, and, if contaminated with cotton, any other articles, shall not be shipped, offered for shipment to a common carrier, received for transportation or transported by a common carrier, or carried, transported, moved? or allowed to be
