GRASSHOPPERS' ARMY TO
BE LARGE THIS YEAR.
Minnesota is likely to have a great
bjg cropif not a bumper crop of grass
hoppers' this year, says A. G. Ruggles,
state entomologist, University Farm,
St Paul. Last fall conditions were
fa^ orable for the hoppers and the signs
this spring indicate an unusually large
number. Conditions here are not very
diffeient from those in Indiana, which
reports that the insects are very num
erous and voracious. Complaints have
already been received from Norman and
,Pope counties in Minnesota and others
The best way to fight the pests is by
the use of a poison bran-mash spread
broadcast over the fields. This mash
io made of 25 pounds of bran and one
pound of paris green, thoroughly mixed.
To this is added a mixture of two
quarts of good cheap molasses, six
oranges which have been put through
a meat grinder, and two gallons of
water, the mixtures of molasses,
oranges and water being poured over
the mixture of bran and paris green and
thoroughly stirred. Fighting grass
hoppers is not an individual job. Farm
ing communities as units should get to
gether and fight the pests.
Giasshoppers are beginning their ra
vages now This is the time to fight
