CODLING MOTH TRAP.
Card for Iteilrajrlnic th. Insert At.r It
Lmvn th, Apple.
If an insect enemy is to be destroyed,
study its life history. H will usually
be found to have certain habits which
make it comparatively easy of destruc
tion. This is true of the codling moth
(apple worm). Anyone at all familiar
with its habits is aware that after tho
first brood of worms leave the apple,
nature compels them to seek a hiding
place on the trunk of the tree, where
they will be removed from the mois
ture of the earth, and here they change
from the worm to the moth. At the
time the worm is seeking this hilling
place it is easily led into a trap, if the
trap furnishes the hiding place for which
it is so anxiously looking, and common
sense teaches the fruitgrower that this
is the time to destroy it, as it remains
in this trap two weeks unable to move.
A trap of this kind Ls shown in the il
lustration. The worm crawls under

the projecting edge and here the grow
er can get at it. The early brood of
moths appears on the wing during the
fore part of June, a little-earlier or
later, according to the season. At the
time it appears the young apples are
already st and are about the size of a
hazel nut. The female deposits a sin
gle egg in the eye of the apple, flying
from one to another until her stock of
eggs, amounting to probably three hun
dred, is exhausted, when she falls to
the ground and dies. In a Unit a week
the egg hatches out, and the young
worm begins at once to bore in
to the apple, feeding as it gms,
but making its headquarters near the
core, says the farmers Advocate. In
about three or four weeks the worm is
full grown, and shortly lie fore this the
infested apple generally falls to the
ground, and the w orm makes its escape
out of the fruit through a large hole in
the side, which it has ltored a few days
before for this purpose, and makes at
once for the trunk of a tree, up which
U climbs and spins around itself a
silken cocoon of a dirty white color in

Here it transforms itself into a pupa,
and towartl the latter part of July or
the fore part of August, bursts forth a
perfect moth. This insect is pretty cer
tain !y known to develop tw broods
each season. This method of trapping
is one means to prevent the develop
ment of the second brood, but of course
it cannot save the apple crop as the
w orms from the first brood do not leave
the apples until a:ter they have mined
them. Spraying with Paris green as

The agricultural department has
issued a circular to be sent to all rail
road presidents of the United States
offering suggestions for cooperation in
the movement for improving wagon
roads. It is suggested that whenever a
general road improvement is under

cost should be defined and a board
constituted for adjusting the rates to
be granted, in accordance with local
conditions. Such a concession would,
be of great value to the public, and its
bare announcement would do more to
advance the road movement than years
of purely educational work.
