JAPANESE BEETLE QUARANTINE
QUARANTINE NO. 48
REVISION OF QUARANTINE AND REGULATIONS
An important change in the following revision of the Japanese beetle
quarantine is the inclusion in the regulated area of the cities of Cleveland,
.Oolumbus, and Toledo in Ohio, as well as the entire counties of Columbiana
and Mahoning, and parts of the counties of Carroll, Jefferson, and Stark, in the
same State. This action is considered necessary because of the establishment
of the Japanese beetle therein. Additional infested territory in the States
ot Maine, Maryland, New York, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia was
also added to the previously regulated areas in such States. Some outlying
areas where Japanese beetle infestations have been found are not included
in the regulated area because of assurance from the States concerned that
adequate measures will be taken to prevent the spread of the pest therefrom.
i:-:: Under section A, paragraph (b) of regulation 5, as revised, a certificate is
required for the interstate movement of restricted fruits and vegetables from
Siune 15 to October 15, inclusive, from other portions of the regulated area to
:Brewer and Waterville, Maine; Buffalo, N. Y., or to the other regulated parts
of Mrie County, N. Y.; Cleveland, Columbus, and Toledo, Ohio; Burlington, Vt.;
and Parkersburg, W. Va. No restrictions are, however, placed on the interstate
o. tvement of any fruits or vegetables from these outlying portions of the
.Unless a certificate or permit has been issued, these regulations as now
-:ti1ed prohibit the interstate shipment of green corn on the cob, beans in
1the pod, bananas in entire bunches or in clusters of 25 or more, apples, peaches,
bletberries, blueberries, huckleberries, or raspberries from the regulated areas,
"ad ab prohibit (unless a certificate or permit has been issued) the inter-
utal1 movement of all fruits and vegetables by refrigerator car or motortruck
*otft the District of Columbia, the State of Delaware, and parts of the States
N: Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Refrigerator cars used
Afor lading fruits and vegetables, other than onions and potatoes, in such area
lt, prior to loading, be cleaned by the common carrier and kept tightly
dosed and sealed during the interval between cleaning and loading. Onions
and potatoes must be fumigated in the car when such action is deemed necessary
tby the inspector, and doors and hatches of the cars must be closed or screened.
... iFor ether details and exceptions see regulation 5.
The regulations also prohibit the interstate shipment of plants, sand, soil,
earth, peat, compost, and manure from any part of the regulated areas to or
-throumgh any outside point throughout the year unless a Federal permit or
certificate has been secured. Portions of plants and cut flowers are restricted
interstate movement only between June 15 and October 15, inclusive. For
deGta and exceptions see regulations 6 and 7.
regulated areas include the District of Columbia, the entire States of
Connectiqcut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Rhode Island, and
parts of the States of Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio,
: Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. The boundaries are shown
in regulation 3.
..i : 135111-a37
These regulations also place certain restrictions to protect restricted articles
from infestation while in transit, require thorough cleaning of vehicles and
containers which have been used in transporting restricted products, and pro-
vide other'-sTfeguards and conditions as provided in regulations 8 to 13,

NOTICE OF QUARANTINE NO. 48 (TWELFTH REVISION)
(Approved Mar. 1, 1937; effective Mar. 1, 1937)
I, H. A. Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, have determined that it is
necessary to quarantine the States of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland,
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia, and the District of
Columbia, to prevent the spread of the Japanese beetle (Popillia japon4ia
Newm.), a dangerous insect new to and not heretofore widely prevalent or
distributed within and throughout the United States.
Now, therefore, under authority conferred by section 8 of the Plant Quaran-
tine Act of August 20, 1912 (37 Stat. 315), as amended by the act of Congress
approved March 4, 1917 (39 Stat. 1134, 1165), and having duly given the public
hearing required thereby, I do quarantine the said States of Connecticut, Dela-
ware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New
York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia,
and the District of Columbia, effective on and after March 1, 1937. Here-
after, under the authority of said act of August 20, 1912, amended as aforesaid
(1) fruits and vegetables; (2) nursery, ornamental, and greenhouse stock, and
other plants; and (3) sand, soil, earth, peat, compost, and manure shall not
be shipped, offered for shipment to a common carrier, received for transporta- i
tion or transported by a common carrier, or carried, transported, moved or
allowed to be moved from any of said quarantined States or District into or
through any other State or Territory or District of the United States in man-
ner or method or under conditions other than those prescribed in the rules and
regulations hereinafter made and amendments thereto: Provided, That the
restrictions of this quarantine and of the rules and regulations supplemental
thereto may be limited to the areas in a quarantined State now, or which may
hereafter be, designated by the Secretary of Agriculture as regulated areas
when in the judgment of the Secretary of Agriculture, the enforcement of the
aforesaid rules and regulations as to such regulated areas shall be adequate
to prevent the spread of the Japanese beetle: Provided further, That such
limitations shall be conditioned upon the said State providing for and en-
forcing such control measures with respect to such regulated areas as, in the
judgment of the Secretary of Agriculture, shall be deemed adequate to prevent
the spread of the Japanese beetle therefrom to other parts of the State: And
provided further, That certain articles classed as restricted herein may, because
of the nature of their growth or production or their manufactured or processed
condition, be exempted by administrative instructions issued by
47SS93 the Chief of the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine
f/-'l' ^,when, in his judgment, such articles are considered innocuous
|A f m as carriers of infestation.

SECTION B. CONDITIONS GOVERNING THE ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATES AND PERMITS
S For the purpose of certification of nursery and ornamental stock, nurseries,
Vs greenhouses, and other premises concerned in the movement of such stock will be
classified as follows:
(1) Class I.-Nurseries, greenhouses, and other premises concerned in the
movement of nursery and ornamental stock on or within approximately 500 feet
of which no infestation has been found may be classified as class I. Upon cornm-
,* pliance with the requirements of subsection (6) of this section, nursery and
ornamental stock may be certified by the inspector for shipment from such
S premises without further inspection, and without meeting the safeguards pre-
Sscribed as a condition of interstate shipment of plants originating in nurseries
or greenhouses of class III.
S (2) Class III.-(a) Nurseries, greenhouses, and other premises concerned
Sin the movement of nursery and ornamental stock on which either grubs in the
Ssoil or one or more beetles have been found, will be classified as class III.
Such classification also may be given to nurseries, etc., in localities known to
B:be generally infested where one or more beetles or grubs are found in the
lImmediate proximity (within approximately 500 feet) of such nurseries, etc., on
Adjacent property or properties. In the case of nursery properties, under
.s\inangle ownership and management, but represented by parcels of land widely
': separated, such parcels may be independently classified either as class I or class
IIfI upon compliance with such conditions and safeguards as shall be required
by':hby the inspector. Similarly, unit nursery properties, which would otherwise fall
4t'i class III, may be open to subdivision, for the purpose of rating such sub-
divisions in classes I or III, when in the judgment of the inspector such action is
-w arranted by recent and scanty infestation limited to a portion of the nursery
cio 0ncerned: Provided, That the subdivision containing the infestation shall be
cp early marked by boundaries of a permanent nature whikh shall be approxi-
lately 500 feet beyond the point where the infestation occurs.
(if)Upon compliance with subsections (3) and (6) of this section, nursery
i and ornamental stock may be certified by the inspector for shipment from such
*ppmises under any one of the following conditions: (i) That the roots shall
'be- treated by means approved by the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quaran-
i tine in manner and by method satisfactory to the inspector; or (ii) in the case

w:i:,de, that the soil shall be entirely removed from the stock by shaking or
Swashing, or (iii) that it shall be shown by evidence satisfactory to the inspector
i.UtlAt the plants concerned were produced in a certified greenhouse.
S.... *:(3) Greenhouses of class III may be certified upon compliance with all the
following conditions with respect to the greenhouses themselves and to all
pottig beds, heeling-in areas, hotbeds, coldframes, and similar plots:
A. (%) Ventilators, doors, and all other openings in greenhouses or coldframes
mon premises in class III shall be kept screened in manner satisfactory to the
'lIfInpector during the period of flight of the beetle, namely, south of the north-
i boundariess of Maryland and Delaware between June 1 and October 1,
Inl usive, or north thereof between June 15 and October 15, inclusive.
