Now Weevils Appearing.
The first generation of boll wee
vils are now hatching out In tho
squares and are now beginning to
emerge. The great majority of the
old, over-wintered weevils have died,
leaving their work to the young and
moro Vigorous descendants.
Specimens of the young, newly
hatched weevils were found last week
on tho farms of F. O.' Skelton and C.
A. Whitfield, The infestation count
of tho squares on these farms was
small, however, revealing from 3 to
5 per cent. Tho infestation has no
doubt been kept down to this small
figure largoly by'careful, systematic
square picking every five to seven
Four or five days after the new
weevils are hatched they begin lay
ing eggs again for the production of
a new generation.
On Mr. Whitfield's farm seven
grown weovils were picked,from the
cotton blooms while making the in
festation count.. During tho middle
of tho day a number may usually bo
found In tho blooms.
For tho" information of those who
aro ready for dusting with calcium
arsenate, it ls very Important to
make the infestation count hoforo

per cont of tho squares are punctured
lt is too early to poison profitably.
