WASHINGTON. April M.-Tko. con -

miliar Objects in the spring in trees
along roadways, streams, and fences,
In neglected orchards, and clsowhcrc.
Several methods of checking thc de
predations ot tills caterpillar are
given in a new publication of the
department of agriculture, Fanner!-.'
Bulletin No. t>?2.
These gregarious caterpillars con
struct thc tents for their protection,
and these, at first small, are gradu
ally enlarged often to a foot or moro
In height and diameter, the size vary
ing with tho number of individuals
in thc colony. The caterpillars feed
upon thc foliago of tho trees, strip
ping the leaves from tho limbs adja
cent to thc ncBt. and If there be sev
eral colonies in a tree, as ls fre
quently thc caso during periods ot
abundance, the foliage may bc quite
de&'royod, leaving the branches as
bare as In midwinter.
BpecicB of the tent caterpillar arc
found quite generally over the entire
United Stattes. ? The moths deposit
their eggs by early midsummer, or
Oarller in tho South. By fall thc
embryonic larvae is practically full
grown, within the egg where it re
mains until the following uprlng.
With tho coming of a warm spell the
larvae escape by. gnawing through
their egg shelis, ottcn before mere
Isjfollagc out for food, and under
sjPcse circumstances the may feed up
on the glutinous covering of tho egg
Methods of Contrat. ? ??
The tent caterpillar feeds princi
pally.on wild cherry and apple trees
but will attack many other planta
and where such trees can be remov
ed without disadvantage this Eboule
be done, thu3 lessening its food sup
During tho dormant period of trees
when the lcaM;a are off. the eg(
masses are fairly conspicuous, and
wlt-hiav-llttlc practice' may. bo readily
found; lt Ia then that they, uhould IK*
cut off andd burned. Tree! infested
with ' larvas during thc carly part of
the year, or those in the Immediate
vicinity, are perhaps morn likely to
be chosen by the parent moth for the
deposition of her eggs, and such 'trees
at least should ho searched if it is
not ?practicable to eliend thc .-wolfe
to the orchard as a whole. Tlira.V,osk
may bo combined with pruning to
good advantage, and a lookout should
be kept not only for the eggs of this
insect but for the eggs and cot _,onn
of other Injurious species which' pass
the winter on the trees.
When t-.vo eggs masses arc deposit
ed close together, the resulting cater
pillars " may form a common nest.
.These nests are gradually enlarged
and soon tarnish ample protection.
If. ttho caterpillars are destroyed- as
soon as the small ness are detected,
this will prevent further'defoliation
I of the trees, and} the rule should
bo adopted to destroy them promptly'
ss soon aa discovered. In this work
either of two practices may be adopt
ed, namely, destruction by lund or
with a torch.
W? en 4n convenient reach, the
nesta may be torn ont arith a brush,
with gloved hand, or otherwise, and
the larvae crushed on the ground,
care being taken to dost rey ?ny cat
err titers which may hav ) remained
on the tree.
The ute of a torch to burn ont the
nesta wilt often be found convenient,
especially whan these occur tn the j
hlgaer parts of trees. An asbestos
torch, such as is advertised by seeds
men, will be sat'sfsetory. or one may'
be mode simply by tying rsgs to thef
end-of a pole. Tho asbestos or rags
are saturated with keiosenc au*
lighted and the caterpillars as far as
possible cremated. 8o4M caterpillars
however, are likely to escape, falling
from the nest upon the application of
the torch, In using' the torch groat
Hare ia necessary that no Important
Injury be dorie the tree: K should not
be used In burning out nesta except
In the smaller branches and twigs,
the ki!-tng of which would be of no
special Importance. Nests in the
larger limbs should be destroyed by
hand, aa tt e ase of the torch may
kill the bark, resulting in permanent

Even tu thc small homo orchard of

?highly profitable to adopt a system of
spraying which will control not only
I tent caterpillars but such Bcrloua
, pests as the codling moth, cankcr

.Injury from the curculio.
. On .stone fruits, such as cherry,
peach, aud plum, artscnlcals arc like
ly to cause injury to foliage and
must be used- with caution if at all.
?On such trees the arsenate of lead ls
preferable, aa lt is less injurious to
foliage, and on all trees sticks much
better. In spraying for the tent cat
erpillars only, applications should bc
?made while .the caterpillars are yet
amati, as these succumb more quick
ly to poisons than those mom nearly
full grown, and prompt traetmcnt
stops further defoliation of thc trees.
