The effect on a population of beet eelworm of growing Hesperis matronalis was tested in microplots in 1956. For comparison, two other treatments were used: fallow, and red beet. Linear regressions of final on initial eelworm densities were made, with modification of the usual analysis to allow for the errors of measurement in the initial population. The rate of decay for eggs with H. matronalis increased with higher initial egg density, but was never sufficiently greater than the rate with fallow to be worthwhile for controlling infestations of beet eelworm. Red beet acted as a trap-crop in this year; few if any new cysts were formed, and the rate of decay was similar to that of H. matronalis.
