Article [From Clemson [College
on ThelArmy Worm.
There is iii this state and several
other states, an invasion of the fall
anny worm on corn, grass and cot
ton. This caterpillar is about 1 to
li inches long when grown. It is
quite different from the cotton cat
erpillar although many farmers
mistake one for the other. This in
sect which is now in this state is
not the cotton caterpiller which did
so much injury to cotton last Hum
mer, but is the fall army worm
which is sometimes called the grase
The fall army worm is usually
present but in such small numbers
that they do no harm to the crops
but on the other band eat the grass
in the fields. It is only when this
insect gets abundant that it does
harm by eating grass, corn, peas
and cotton. The weather conditions
this season have been unusually
favorable for its development. Most
farmers who have seen the work of
this insect realize that immediate
action is necessary for the control
of this pest. ?
Control Measures-The two poi
sons that have given the best satis
faction so far are powdered arse
nate of lead and Paris green. Paris
green c:m usually be bought ata
local drug store, while as a rule ar
senate of lead is not handled by
sach dealers. The arsenate of lead
can be secured from wholesale deal
ers and most all ^eed houses.
How to Distribute the Poison
About six inches from each end of
a board one inch thick and four in
ches wide, and twelve inches longer
than the width of the rows, bore a
hole one inch or more in diameter.
Cut two pieces of cloth, 20x14 in
ches, the cloth being about the
weight of 8 oz. duck. Make two'
bags of these pieces of cloth and
tack one on each end, securely un
der the bole in the board. The holes
in the boards may be closed with
wooden stoppers made for that pur
pose. The bags are about 5 inches
deep and 15 inches long.? This ar
rangement can be carried on foot
or on a mule and two rows treated
at tho same time. Apply in the
morning while the dew is on the
plants but do not get the bass wet.
If Paris sreen is used repeat if rain
wa hes ir off.
Amountof Poison to Uso-For
cotton three feet hiirh use the fol
lowing amounts of which ever
poison in used. The amount varies
according to whether the cotton is
smaller or larger than throe foot
high. And in the cace of corn and
oilier plants vary accordingly.
Arsenate of Lead-4-5 pounds
per acre. No danger of burning.
Paris Green -1 to l\ pounds per
acre-On large plantations where
quick work is imperative, the Paris
Green should not be used in quanti
ties materially exceeding the dose
given above as there is danger of
scrioti>ly barning the foliage.
The second generation will like
ly app ar ?ti about three or four
ireeks after the present generation
disappears and will possibly be
more numerous; it will bo well to
keep on the lookout for the secon I
