VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOURNAL WEDNESDAY MARC11 22, 1899. AGRICULTURAL. Tho Work of n Worm. Tho grontcst Iihiilranco to applo cul turc iu tho cost ls tho worm thnt comcs from tho cgg lnld by tho codllug-moth. Nowndaye ovorything thnt intorosts peoplo ia writton nbout, nnd ns tho codling ruoth iutqrcsts frult growcrs to tho cxtent of ruinlug one-fourth to one-linlf of tho applo crop cach ycar, It would bo thought that a good many pagCB would havo boeu writton nbout tho pcst. But It scoms thnt tho lnteet and bost works on lt 1b a bullotln of tho Coruolt Statlon (142), contnlnlng 70 pnges wlth 18 lllustrntioua. As thls vilo worru interoslB nlnioat cvorybody, for ovorybody olthur growB or cats npplcs, wo will lay boforo our rcadcrs somo of tho facta hroughl out in this bullotln. Tho qnostlon lins ofton bccn dis cussed, IIow Bhould tho nanjo be epelled? Whilo ofton writton "codlin" that Bpulla another word; tho g should ilwnys bo added. As it wna unmed "codling molh" in 1747, from a codling trco, a kind of applo trco, it would eeom innppropriato to glvo it a dlffer cnt uamu. Tho cggB aro lald usually on tho leaves close to tho npploB or on tho ap plea thcmsolvos, but not on the cnlyx aa haa bccn gencrnlly Bupposod. Tho egga nro laid tho lnat pnrt of May or tho flrBt half of Juno whcn tho pctnla of tho bloaaornB havo fnlleu off from most vnrictlcs of npplcs. A tnoth laysabout 100 egge, but mnny of thcso may bc Bterllo. Somotlmoa sovoral ogcs are Inid on tho snmo npplo. It takoa tho eggs about a Weok to hatch. Tho worm eata Ita way out of tho egg ahcll, and thon oats whatovor comcs handy for a fow dnys If tho egg was laid on a lcnf, it cats from that or if it omcrges upon tho skin of au applo, it takes a fcw mcals on thc skin wherovcr it hap pens to flnd itsolf. But its homo is in tho coro of tho applc, itB choicest food is thc applo sccds, and ao it tunncls its way thithor na soon aa it conveniently can. Itight hero between tho timo tho worm hatcheB and tho timo it gets wcll at work on its way to tho applo coro is tho moat vulnerablo point in its life. For a ehort timo tho worm must got ita food on tho eurface of tho npple, and nere poison can bo deposited to kill tlio worm. And now thoro comcs to light another fact. For a fcw days aftor the bloB8oma fnll tho calyx remaina opcn, thon thc leaves of tho calyx closo to gether. If theroforo tho trecs aro eprayed with paris green juat after tho blosaoms fal), a little of tho poiaon will lodgo in tho calyx or blossom end of tho little applo, and this will be cover- ed up by tho closing or folding over of tho leaves of the calyx. But tho worm gonerally ontcrs tho applo at this very polnt, and bo ia vcry suro to mako a jueal of tho poison and thua bo doa- troycd. By spraying with Fnris green from 0 to evon 90 per ceut of tho fruit that would othcrwiao be ruined can bo eaved wlth no grcat cxpenee. But the Bprayiug muBt bo done at tho right tirae, must bc well done, or it will not protect. God has opcned this door of hopo to tho orchardiat, has caused the worm to chooao to cntor tho applo at tho blossom oud, haB provided that tho .calyx should romalu open n .ahort timo aftor tho bloaaorn falis, thua giving an -apportunity to spraytho;fruit and dcs- troy tho worm. It has taken man cen turies to flnd thls out, but now there is no excuso for not protecting the or cbards and tho applos from this post. A fow lato hatched broods may eacape; a Bmall number of tho worms may eat vrhere thero is no poison, a raiu may como at tho timo to wash off tho poison before the calyx leaves closo ovor it to cover it, but these things do not pre vent tho dostruction of the worms by caroful sprayers. itigut nore ls a great lesaon to bo Jearned, not alone tho loaaon that tho codling moth can bo deatroyod by spraying with Paria green juat after tho applo blossoma fnll, but tho greatorles soa that tho man who takes pains, who nscaBkill nnd thought, and ho alono will or can sucoecd. Tho orchardiat Who doea not spray will loao onc-half to threo-fourlhs of his applo crop. The xne who aprays carelessly will savo a jart of his crop, but tho ono who does tho spraying well, will got tho most of his crop in good ahapo. It U a matter of brains, of tho head rather thau (tho hande, of tho thlnking orchardisl, rath er than tho careleas farmor with a few applo treee. Blainly it is gotting to be moro and inoro tho way that men of good minds, mon who can maungo tboir affairs with good judgraont, who aro prompt and onergolic, who lcarn euch facts nB nro contalned in this nrti clo and the bullotln rofcrred to nbove, And then put thom iu prnctice, thoao aro tho mon who aro golng to mako a auccess of farming In nll its branchee.
