The Cotton Red Spider. *
According to the letters received at
this office, the Cotton Bed Spider Is
doing considerable damage in many
parts of the State. Owing to the num
ber of calls for assistance in checking
the ravages of this pest, it Is Impos
sible for a man to be sent to each
The Cotton Red Spider is a very
small insect, about the size of a chick
en mite, and is seen only on close ob
servation. When plants are infested
the damage is first seen at the base of
the loaf. The leaf turns reddish in
color, and this gradually spreads over
the entire leaf, which soon falls off.
On examining closely the under side
of the infested leaves, the Red Spider
will be found, sucking the sap out of
the leaf. A fine web is made on the
under side of the leaf, and beneath this
the spiders lay their eggs, and are
supported while feeding. As they have
no wings, the spiders must crawl
from plant to plant or be curried by
some animal, as the horse or mule
As soon as the damage Is noticed,
if it is confined to a few plants, these
may be pulled carefully, arl burnt.
Any plants that are pulled up, and
then left on the edge of the field, will
not check the damage, as the Spider
will soon crawl to fresh plants.
Wlu ie the Infestation covers too large
an arett to warrant the above proceed
ing, the plants should be sprayed at
once with potassium sulphide, using
three pounds to inn gallons of water.
It is best even where a small area is
involved, to use the above mentioned
spray over an area extending out at
least 50 feet from the original place
of Infestation, In spraying, lie sure
that the under sides of the leaves are
covered, as most of the insects are
The Cotton Red Spider usually starts
from violets. Jamison weeds, or Poke
berry weeds. Violets are usually the
starting points, and these plants
should be examined frequently and
carefully. If the spider is found on
them, they should be sprayed as rec
ommended for the cotton. The Jami
son weeds and the Poke-berry weeds
should not be allowed to grow any
where near the cotton field. As soon
as the cotton becomes infested, the
farmer should see that the above
plants are destroyed, not merely pulled
up and left lying on the ground, but
burned. If they are left lying on the
ground, the Bed Spider will lind its
way to the cotton.
Clean culture, by destroying
weeds, especially those mentioned
above, ami deep fall plowing, will do
much to check or eradicate this pest.
The potassium sttbphldo for the spray
can usually be purchased from drug
stores. If they do not have it, they
will gladly order it for you from some
wholesale drug company.
