PROMISING NEW TREATMENT FOR
ERADICATION OF SAN JOSE SCAL
By A. L. QL'AINTAXCE, Entomologist
In CTiarse Fruit Insect Investigations.
United States Department of Agriculture.
The San Jose scale is just now ex
ceedingly abundant and destructive in
many orchards in the Bentonville,
(Ark.) section, and growers state they
are unable to adequately control the
pest with the usual dormant tree treat
ments with lime-sulphur spray. While
the bureau of entomology believes
that thorough spraying with dormant
tree strength of lime sulphur will con
trol the San Jose scale, yet to meet
the desire of orchardists for other than
lime-sulphur treatments, a number of
experiments with sprays were under
taken. The purpose of the present
article is to call attention to results
secured in the treatment of the scale
by the use of a spray containing 2
per cent of lubricating or engine oil
emulsified with potash fish-oil soap.
Remarkably Effective Spray.
Tne careful experiments in Florida
by W. W. Yothers with various sprays
for the control of citrus scale insects
and the orans white fly, as published
in Farmers' Bulletin 9P.a, resulted in a
formula of engine-oil spray which has
been found remarkably effective in
view of Him iniHll amount of oil used.
minutes the brown scum beginsto dis
appear and at this stage the kettle is
removed from the fire and the entire
mixture is pumped twice under pres
sure of about 60 pounds while still very
hot. A proper emulsion cannot be
made by stirring nor should the mix
ture .be allowed to Cool before it is
pumped. Too much pumping will often
break up the emulsion. During pump
ing, ordinary pump packing is burnt
up rather quickly by the hot oil mix
ture. For making the stock emulsion
on a large scale an all-metal pump
would be necessary.
The stock emuislon contains GO 2-3
per cent of oil. To make a 2 per cent
emulsion for use In a 200-galIon spray
tank it is necessary to use G gallons
of the stock emulsion.
Precaution should be taken to pre
vent the stock emulsion from freezing,
which occurs at a temperature of
about lo degrees F. above zero.
Use Soft Water.
In case difficulty Is experienced in
making a proper emulsion, due to
hardness of the water, the water used
should be softened by the addition of
1 pound of caustic soda or lye per 100
gallons of diluted spray. The caustic
soda should be dissolved in 2 or 3

namely, 1 per cent, emulsified with
potash fish-oil soap. Mr. Yothers found
that any one of several oils of the
lubricating type, when thoroughly
emulsified and used at the dilution In
dicated, was quite effective against
these scale insects and the white fly,
and these sprays have now come into
large commercial use in Florida.
The surprising efficiency of a spray
containing such a low per cent of oil
suggested the desirability of testing
sprays of this character against the
San Jose scale. The abundance and
destructiveness of the scale in the
Bentonville section of Arkansas and
the desire of growers for other than
lime sulphur sprays, has offered ex
cellent opportunity for testing Various
dilutions of engine oil sprays against
this pest. The experiments were car
ried out by A. J. Ackerman, of the
office of deciduous fruit insect inves
tigations, and have included tests of
lubricating oils of a strength of from
one-half per cent to 4 per cent or 5
per cent, thoroughly emulsified with
potash fish-oil soap. The results
showed practically complete killing of
the scale by one thorough application
of the spray of a strength as low as
2 per cent of oil. Orchardists have
been so pleased with the results that
the 2 per cent oil spray will be ex
tensively used in their present neces
sity of bringing the pest under subjec
tion. Injury by Oil Spray.
A point yet to be established in con
nection with the present experiments
Is the possibly injury from' oil spray
which may result to the trees, twigs,
or fruit buds, and several seasons' ex
perience will be necessary before a
final decision on this question can b
reached. In view of the experience In
Florida in spraying citrus trees In
foliage with 1 per cent of oil, it is felt
that dormant deciduous trees will prob
ably stand without Injury one annual
treatment containing 2 per cent of oil.
In order to render the treatment
available to orchardists who may wish
to test It on a small scale, the follow
ing directions for making the stock
emulsion are given :
Formula for Stock Emulsion.
Red Engine O!!, or oil of similar
prrade gallon 1
Potash Fish-Oil Soap pound 1

Burface of the mixture as it first be
gins to boll. After boiling for a few-

PLACE FOR TOMATO PLANTS
Some Protection From Southwest
Winds Should Be Provided
Fertilize the Soil.
Select a semi-protected location
from the southwest winds for your
tomato plants for home use. Build
ings, trees, a hill or com afford good
protection. Do not set the plants too
close to the protecting object or they
will be injured by shade. Fertilize
the soil. Set the plants deep In rows
five feet apart and plants two to three
feet in the rows.
ALFALFA WITH NURSE CROPS
Good Stand Made at Massachusetts
Station Planted With' Red and
a Little Wh'ite Clover.
Alfalfa sowed with peas and oats,
as early as the ground can be worked,
along with red clover, and a little
white clover, made a good stand at
Massachusetts station. The nurse
crop was cut rather early for cows,
and the legumes grew so rankly dur
ing the moist summer as to make a
heavy cutting in September, with two
crops the next season.
Caring for Little Chicks.
Brooding and caring for chicks Is
far more Important than hatching. To
chill the chicks Is always fatal. It
often -costs something to learn this.
PLANT PEAS FOR ALL SEASON
Soil Should Be Prepared the
Same as for Other Crops.
Some Fertilizer Should Be Scattered
Where Row Is to Be Planted and
Then Raked In Scatter
Seed Along In Furrow.
In planting grarden peas first pre
pare the soil the dhme as for other
crops, then scatter a little fertilizer
where the row is to be planted and
rake this Into the soil. Next stretch
a line and make a deep mark with the
corner of the hoe. The bottom of this
mark should be at least three laches
across so that the seed can be spread
somewhat and not crowded too closely
together. Scatter the seed In this
furrow 15 to 20 seeds to the foot,
then cover about three Inches deep
and slightly firm the soil over the
seed -with the back of the hoe. About
two weeks will generally elapse be
fore the sprout appears above the
At least three, and preferably four,
plantings should be made at Intervals
Of two weeks In order to keep Tip a
continuous supply, advises the United
States Department of Agriculture. If
j&e first planting Is of Alaska the 8
ond should be of Gradus or Thomas
Laxton, while the third should be of
Excelsior and the fourth of Telephone
or some similar variety. This will
guarantee a continuous supply.
There Is nothing particularly diffi
cult about the cultivation of peas
Just keep them well hoed and prop
erly' trained upon the brush or wire
trellis to keep them off the ground.
After the peas are all gathered the
vines and trellis can be removed and
the ground planted to late potatoes,
late cabbage, spinach, turnips, late
snap bans, or any crop that It Is de
sired to grow during the last summer
or tall months.
SPRAYING FOR PEAR PSYLLA
Under Suitable Weather Conditions
- Pest May Be Exterminated
Experiments In dusting and spray
ing for pear psylla lead to the con
clusion that under suitable weather
conditions the pear psylla adult on In
dividual trees may be exterminated
with equal certainty by either dusting
or spraying with nicotine prepara
tions. The practicability of freeing
an entire orchard of the pest remain
to be demonstrated.

Ohlinger told him was never learned

Nearly Dozen Destroyers Which Wore
Coveted Gold Star on Stacks,
A typewriter has at last defeated
nearly a dozen of the destroyers which
for four years zizagpred through the
North sea and in the submarine zone

tories over German submarines. The
coveted jrold stars, worn on the stacks,
