THE FRUIT FLY AND OUR
Parasites ot the Mediterranean
fruit tiy first Introduced here in
AJuy, 1913, have ticen quietly waging
warfare and gradually reducing ill ir
enemy in numbers. Careful investi
gations indicate than considerably
more than half of the fruit ll'.v.n
are killed by parasites, this percent
age having gardunlly Increased iir 1
Si per cent in 1916, to 58 per cei.t In
1921. it is however, thai
.ho pmusiius will not increase their
work much more, having probably
reached about their maximum de
velopment. As a result of the decline in theii
iiumbtrs, the fruit fly now seldom
'stings" those least to her iikiu0
and fortunately, oranges and man
foes were among these, and are
ioui.d to be free from worms much

ily worms in, for the skin Is thin
and the pulpy tissue around the seed
.8 also thin, making it easy for the
parasite to reach and sting the
worms. It has' been observed that
over 9G per cent of the worms In
offee berries are killed by para
Four species of parasites have
oeen brought in to attack the Medi
terranean fruit fly, all four btMng
wasps about one-fourth inch lorg
and the females provided with a
long, delicate "sting." By means of
this the parasite pierces the woriny
fruit, stings the worm Inside and
lays an egg which latir develops in
to parasite worm living and feeding
on the fruit fly maggot. The latter
is not at once destroyed by the para
site, but reaches maturity and forms
a pupa. At this stage the parasite
puts in its final licks and kills the
fruit fly as it Is developing from
its worm stage. Instead of a fly
emerging from the pupa case, a
parasite wasp comes out.
Of the four species, one stands
out as being more effective than
the others. The scientific name of
this little fellow Is "Diachasma try-
oni." It was brought here just nine
years ago from Australia, four fe
males and three males arriving here
alive. These were bred up for a
while to increase their numbers,
and then were) liberated in Kona,
Hawaii, and Walanae, Oahu. Later
liberations and natural dispersal
have established this and the other
three parasite species pretty well
throughout thei territory.
The melon fly Is another species
of fruit fly, and it also has its para
sites now working effective' y. Next
week we will have Bometbiug to
say about this fellow.
SCHOOL AND HOME GARDENS
There have been good exhibits of
farm products of ull kinds bo,n
at the industrial exhibits which
have been held on all the islands
during the past few weeks. It was
a splendid way to bring the vaiious
school and liome garden, contests
to a closa. The prize winners in
many cases were announced at these

as well as a large number of home
gardens on the Island of Oahu. Na

ly Improved. Sucoeuful gardening
is dependent to a large extent on
proper leadership by the teack-3".
The pupils will surely become inter
ested if the matter is presented to
them in the right way by a r.t.iu-
inely interested teacher. Som par-
f den 'j on the same plot o. ground,
with the same pupils to a liri;o ex
tent, have advanced from th oot
tomtom of the list to near the top
in one year by lnstrusting the work
to teachers who were really Inter
ested In this work.
Gardening should be encouraged
in every possible way. The vego
ables raised are only one of the
many benefits derived from a good
gardening project. Gardening de
velops leadership among the boys
and girls, who in turn encourage
others who might otherwise take
no Interest whatever. And, best of
all, it has tauglit tho gardeners that
the unsightly backyard can be made
attractive and profitable. Many
present school gardeners are goinp
to continue to be gardeners long
after they are out of school. In
their school gardening work they
have learned many vuluable lessons

Instead of allowing school gard
ens to grow up to weeds as is' of
ten the case now that tho contests
are over, why not plant them to
some easily kept crop like sweet
potatoes. Sweet potateos can be
grown almost as easily as wtieds
in most soils, and tbuy are far more
profitable and attractive. In most
cases It should be possible to make
some arrangements which will pro
vide for the taking care of the
school garden during the summei
when the schools are closed. L. A
BEST REMEDY FOR CHICKEN
The best way to get rid of chick
en lice in your flock Is to use souiuin
fluoride, nils Is a powder which i
both cheap and easy to use, eithei
in the dry condition or dissolved li.

chukena in Hie sodium fluoride so
lution) is better but a little hanlui
to apply and shout, be used only
iu summer weatuer. We have trieu
ooth methods and reccomeiid citnei
as ueiug very eueclive.
For clipping dissolve 1-4 pound ol
commercial sodium fluoride lit a ill

Dusting by the pinch method is
also effective if thoroughly done. l
has the advantage that it can be
done any time regardless of the

of the fowl over the back with the

points over the body, especially at

The sodium fluoride Is irritating
if inhaled and It is well to tie a
cloth over your nose and mouth when
applying the powder.
Unless reinfection taken place
thru carelessness, a single treat
ment should prove effective for se
eral months. But It Is well to ex
amine the fowl occasionally. The
treatment Is especially effective on
setting hens which should be treat

be bought at most any drug store.
