Cantaloup 'PMR-45 ' was seeded 31 May to 60-inch rows and individual plots consisted of five, 27-ft rows. Insecticides were applied on three dates (29 Jul, 8 Aug, 18 Aug) with the first applications made to co­ incide with the onset of small fruit. Applications were made using a hand-operated compressed air sprayer delivering 8 gal/A. Evaluations were conducted 27 Aug by examining 10 fruit per plot and rating the amount of larval tunneling injury to the rind, using a 0 (no injury) to 3 (severe rind injury) scale. All the treatments reduced fruit damage by striped cucumber beetle larvae. Among the different treatment timings, plots sustained least damage when treated 29 Jul, approximately one month prior to evaluation.
