Fruitgrowers Say the Cicadas
Have Done Damage to Trees
Bordering on Woodland
Gettysburg, Pa., June 24. —Ac-
cording to an orchardman who has
visited many of the orchards in the
great Adams county fruit belt, the
locusts have done considerable dam
age in somo of the orchards. Those
that are bordered by or lay close to
woodlands seem to be the ones that
are hurt the most. For two or
three rows of trees back into the
orchard places where the trees have
been stung and the eggs deposited
can be seen in large numbers and
many of the branches are so badly
stung that they are breaking off.
The most of this damage seems to
be on the growth of last year, this
year's shoots not being damaged to
any great extent. Neither are the
young trees or young orchards hurt
very much, the older places appar
ently suffering the most damage.
it is almost certain that the work
of the locusts, together with the cold
snap which occurred late in the
spring, will materially affect the
crop to be harvested and, instead of
having a bumper crop, such as the
Adams county orchardists are ac
customed to gathering, there will
likely not be more than three
fourths of the usual crop on the
trees when picking time comes.
This means the loss of thousands of
dollars to the growers.
Indications are that other fruits
will also yield a short crop. It is
stated that there are practically no
peaches on the trees this year. Cher
ries also will yield a poor crop. Both (
peach and cherry trees were full of
bloom, but it is evident that the
freezing weather of the late spring
spoiled the fruit and caused it to
fall from the trees before it ma
