Los Angeles Inspectors

The Los Angeles Examiner of Jan

Fearing that the asphldiaats b re
mains, a species of Insect pest which
has made its appearunce In Los An
geles In shipments of pineapples
from Honolulu, might attack South
ern California fruit trees, Inspectors
at the Los Angeles market are keep
ing a sharp watch for It.
Already It has been necessary to
destroy one' small shipment of pine
nppcs, as the pest wus found on It
In considerable numbers. The bug
attaches Itself ta the outside of tho
pineapple. It does not pierce the
thick skin, and therefore the edible
qualities of the fruit are not af
fected. It is only through fear that the
Southern California fruit Industries
might be affected that the Inspectors
already are righting against Its ap
pearance here. They say that It the
fruit woro properly fumigated before
It leaves Honolulu there could be no
