Fighting the Chinch Bug With
The chinch bug cost the state of
Missouri approximately S5.c00.0oal
this year Unless immediate steps
are taken to destroy the swarms
(which are living over duringi the
winter this los will be greatly in
creased next year.
Between now and December J.
all meadows, pastures, toads,
wastelands and other fields, which
are heavily overgrown, should be
carefully examined fm the hiber
nating chinch bugs. Those fields
near wheat and cornfields which
wereinfested last summer should be
examined with special care The
insects hide deep duwn in clumps
of grass, under leaves and rubbish,
and in many cases their presence
can be detected frcm the disa
greeable odor of the crushed bugs,
even before one finds them in
their hiding places.
Wherever they are 'found, the
fields should be burned over im
mediately and carefully so that
the heat will penetrate down into
tne clumps ot grass and make a
clean job. Faimers should coop
erate in burning over all public
highways and railroad right of
ways in the infested regions. With
careful, systematic burning ot all
harboring places in the fall, a large
percentage of the millions of hi
bernating bugs will be killed by
the heat directly and many more
left exposed to the winter. After
each and every farmer has done
all he can to destroy the pest dur
ing tho winter, the fight will be
well enough started so that, if
taken up in time next summer,
the injury from the pests may be
greatly reduced. L. Haseman,
