THE MEDINA SENTINEFRIDAY AUGUST ti, 1914.
GUard Against , !i';the May Beetles .t 'r It is of the greatst importance that fanners properly handle their fields this fall and next spring to prevent a repetition of the enormous losses from May Beetles, or so called June bugs, occasioned in 1912, when the bug pest cauaed many millions of dol lar damage. . The bugs were extremely abundant the- past spring in northwestern Iowa, southern Wisconsin, and northern Il linois, parts of Minnesota, and south ern part of Michigan and northern Ohio; also in northwestern Pennsyl vania, southeastern New York, parts of Connecticut and New Jersey This is indicative of a great abundance of white grubs in 1915, and judging from the greater abundance of bee tles in most of these sections this spring than three years ago, the grub iM4nMt mill Via Alton nvantAH VlQT 1T1 1912. Injury can be reduced to a minimum by adopting the following practices: In the sections above mentioned the important economic species have a three year life cycle, that is, beetles appearing in the spring of 1914 de posit eggs which hatch about a month after being laid. The, young grub feeds on roots and decaying matter, but seldom do damage during their first year. 1 However, the following year (1915 in the case of the destruc tive brood under discussion) they are living roots, preferably corn, timothy, potatoes, strawberries, i etc., causing larger and feed almost'; entirely j on great loss when abundant.-, The fol lowing spring (1916) thejffeed more or ? less but by June 1st or shortly thereafter they make earthern cells, become semi-dormant and in a fort night or longer change to a brown pupae, ' and a month later to adult beetles, in which condition they re main in the soil until the next spring (1917). ' . . i i- ' The beetles lay their eggs in land covered with vegetation at the time, of their flights (May and June), con-i sequently land in small grain, tim othy, and such crops, which cover the ground, as well as land overgrown with weeds at that time, are most likely to be infested the following year. It is also noticeable that ground nearest timber will be heaviest infested, other conditions being equal, since the parent beetles feed on tree foliage and do not fly great distances if they can find suitable places to lay their eggs nearby. ' " " Fields likely to be infested with the grubs shoud be thoroughly plowed be. tween September J.5 and .October 10. The date of plowing will depend upon the weather conditions for1 the grubs go down as cold weather approaches and it is desirable to plow the field just before they go down, when pos sible. If the grubs are abundant, hogs should be allowed to run in the field whenever this can be done. Al so chickens and turkeys are valuable aids if they are allowed the run of the' plowed ground If it is impos sible to make use of hogs to rid the infested fields of grubs a deep , and thorough disking should follow the plowing and in 1915 only crops least susceptible to injury, such as small grains, buckwheat, clover, vetch, etc., should be planted, and by no means should susceptible crops such as corn, timothy, and potatoes be planted. While fall plowing should be prac ticed and is of great value for destroy ing grubs, nevertheless it cannot "be depended upon Boley to eradicate grubs. Cornfields which were kept cultivated and free from an under growth of weeds in Many and June of 1914 may, with reasonable safety be planted to corn or potatoes in 1915, although it is advisable to inspect the field first for grubs. While it is im portant at this time, in those selec- uuns wiiero wre ji ni" to adopt this rotation for the coming year, even though it may become nec essary to assist the second successive crop with artificial fertilizer. r'f ; Proper precautions and planning of rotations for1 next, iftj this .time will ; save j many thousands of 'dollars in crops which otherwise would almost certainly be destroyed by the grubs; The reader is referred to Farmre's Bulletin No. 543 of the, deptment pf Agriculture Htoe further ' particulars on the white grub. v J1" Fcf 'Ftnss And Village f Prcjerty Seo Donaldson 50 acre fan.; good 8-room, 2-story house; fair barn; on C.
