Nature’s Children Twelve-Spotted Cucumber Beetle By LILLIAN COX ATHEY. More acres will be planted to cu cumbers this year than In 1941. This may be good news to cucumber beetles, of which there are several species, for their fondness for the leaves of this vegetable last year cost American farmers something like *3.600,000. Take a look at this 12-spotted insect. Not much for size individual ly, but multiply it by millions and you have a vast horde of leaf-con sumers capable of putting the cu cumber growers far in the red. Beside eating the leaves of the plant, these beetles are carriers of plant diseases. Growers of canta loupes and melons, as well as cu cumbers, face serious losses because of the danger of Invasion by these small and determined foes. It has been estimated that it cost each grower $3.50 per acre for labor, machinery and Insecticides to combat these pests last year. Something like 475,000 acres were planted to cucumbers—figure out what we could do with the money lost through these "fifth col umnists ! ” In order to cope with any foe, we must learn something about his habits and modes of procedure. The adult beetle feasts on the leaves, giving them a ragged appearance— usually the first Indication the grower has of invasion. No plant can get along without its vital leaf factory. The younger generation spends its time feasting on com roots and grass, though the beans and pods growing nearby always appeal to them. As the cucumber beetles thrive throughout the Eastern States, and their close cousins are to be found in other States, you will readily see what it means to permit them to succeed. Cucumber beetles usually make their first appearance in May. Later, great colonies of them gather j around the stems and leaves of the helpless cucumber plants. On cool nights, the tribe will seek shelter from winds and frost. Serve your uninvited guests with nicotine dust. If this does not prove fatal, give them a more potent mix ture made of calcium arsenate, gyp e06 jy sum or land plaster, or Bordeaux mixture. When this concoction begins to take effect, there is an exodus. Something tells the army it had better move on. At this time, poul try should not be permitted to sam ple the travelers. These beetles have two modes of transportation—by foot, which is slow but effective, and by air, which Is swifter and enables the flyer to reach more distant supplies. Co operation among growers in some method of all-out war against these costly invaders must be devised. Feeding insects does not appeal to thrifty people.
