To Kill Chinch Bugs.
The Kansas Agricultural College
makes the statement that if the
larineis of any section will co-operate
in the burning of bunch grass
and trash on their farms, 9S5 out
of every 1000 chinch bugs will be
killed. In view of the havoc whicn
was wrought by the pests last year,
the idea i- worthy of serious consid
etation The statement says1 "The bugs
are leaving the coin-fields now for
their winter homes alonq fence
rows and 111 patches of graso. Ex;
animation will show where burnin
is necessary and co operation o
neighbors will make it an easy
matter November is the time to
burn the grass.
"Repeated experiments made by
bug cxpeits at the Kansus Agricul
tural College 111 various sections of
the state show that tall burning is
the one certain way tn prevent the
possibility of jx bug invasion iht
following summer. Dut to make
fall burning successful co-operation
of farmers in a neighborhood is
necessary. If Jones burns his grass
and Smith, across the road, doesn't,
the bugs will emerge from the
Smith grass next spring and attack
crops on both Wins The grass
should be burned as closely to the
ground as possible The closer it
is burned the greater number of
bugs ate killed.
