Does it Pay to Spray?
I The question has been asked a
j good many times and as often an
! wered, yet we find quite a number
[ of orchards, both large and small,
I whose owners do not pay much at
tetion to spraying for the codling
moth, scale and many other insects
which should be looked after very
carefully. When asked why they ne
[gleet this very important work, their
'Answer is "It don't pay," or 'can't af
ford to get the necessary equipment,'
; tod in some instances some one will
tty, "Well, why don't the inspector
come and tell me to spray." Now
for the benefit of all who are inter
ested in growing fruit in this state,
Wd especially of those who are in
I different and negligent in attending
I to this very important work, we de
[ *fre to call your attention to the
f enormous loss to the fruit grower
I «ach year from the ravages of in
| eects and fungi, such losses being
I krgely due to the careless and in-!
' Afferent fruit
I The estimated loss to our orchard
I from insects and fungi annually is
I from $300,000,000 to $500,000,000;
I tod that 75 per cent of this amount,
I or from 225 to 375 millions can be

though it be partly or wholly closed.
Also when spraying for scale the
pressure should be great enough to

determination to succeed.
