CUTWORMS INJURE TOMATOES Arsenic and Paris Green are Deadly Poisons and Must Be Handled With Great Care—Rotation of Crops Is Advisable. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) From the standpoint of their food plants, injurious insects may be grouped roughly into two classes: First, those which are choice feeders and ordinarily attack only a single crop, or crops of a single class, al though when they are extremely abundant they may resort to oilier crops or weeds. Examples are the asparagus beetles and asparagus miner and the large tomato worms, which coniine their feeding to plants of a single family. Second, those known as générai feeders—insects which are not particular as to their food plants. Some of these devour nearly every form of vegetable that grows in the garden. These include cutworms and cher caterpillars, a d The Common Wireworm—A, Adult; B, Larva; C, Last Segments of Same; D, Pupa—All Enlarged. several forms of leaf-beetles and flea beetles, plant-lice, tlirips, blister beetles, and others. When abundant, some of these pests do great damage, sweeping over large areas and ruin ing entire crops before they can he stopped. Cutworms. Tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and other truck plants, particularly when started under glass, are likely to be injured by cutworms when transplanted. These appear in great numbers in the spring and early summer, and the Injury is often complete before the gardener notices it. The chief In jury is due to the severing of the stems of young p'ants at about the surface of the ground. One cutworm can destroy many plants in a single night by cutting off more than it can devour. Control.—The best remedy is what is called "poisoned bait." For use in a small garden take 1 peck of dry bran, add 4 ounces of white arsenic or Paris green, and mix thoroughly with 2 gallons of water in which has been stirred half n gallon of sorghum or other cheap molasses. For a large garden, use 1 bushel of bran to 1 pound of the arsenical mixed I I ! I | by at a the in 9-6t The Ash-Gray Blister Beetle. with 8 gallons of water containing half a gallon of molasses. This is enough for treating 4 or 5 acres of cultivated crops. After the mash has stood for several hours, scatter it In lumps the size of a marble over the garden where the injury is beginning to appear and about the bases of the plants set out. Apply late In the day so as to place the poison about the plants before night, which is the time when cut worms are active. Apply a second or third time if necessary. It is advisable to keep young chil dren, live stock, and chickens away from this bait Clean cultural methods and crop rotation are advisable, as are also deep fall plowing and disking, to prevent recurrences of cutworm at tacks. Experienced growers become expert In detecting cutworms and re move them by band. This often can be done with profit on small patches. White Grubs. When new land is used for plant ing vegetables, especially land that has been in sod or grown up with weeds, white grubs are almost cer tain to make their appearance, some times in large numbers, doing great damage to plnnts from the time they ittaln any growth until the fruit is ready for harvest. They feed chiefly on roots and attack especially po tatoes, corn, and strawberries, but they are general feeders. Wldte grubs, or "grun worms," are the larvae or young of the brown May or June beetles, with which most persons are familiar. The beetles occur in the North as late as August, while in the South they appear in April or earlier. Control.—Deep plowing is the most effective remedy for white grubs. Cross plowing and deep disking are sometimes necessary, and the ground should be disturbed often and kept clean of weeds so that the grubs cun be eliminated. notation of crops, avoiding the planting of potatoes, beets, sweet corn, and other crops on land which has been for some time in the same crops or in strawberries, grasses, or weeds is advisable. Fertilizers, especially kainit, as a heavy toil-dressing are of benefit, (las lime 's valuable. Hogs, if allowed the run of the newly plowed garden, or when the crop is off, will eat large numbers of grubs. Domestic fowls will pick up grubs on newly plowed land. i-s-e Farmers' Bulletin 543, "Common White Grubs." Wireworms. Wireworms, like white grubs, are common pests in the garden and are also general feeders. They are tlie offspring of snapping beetles, or "snap-bugs," and are of long oval form. Their tastes are similar to those of ttie white grubs. They attack and often do great injury to potatoes and other points beariog tubers, as well as to carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, and onions. Control.—The remedies advised for white grubs apply also to wireworms, with due care in selecting land for planting and in fall plowing ami crop rotation. Wireworms, however, are much more difficult to control than white grubs. Blister B»etles. Blister beetles are common farm pests and are very destructive to vegetables, especially beans, pens, po tatoes, and beets. They travel in the same manner as army worms and are sometimes called "army beetles" for this reason. They are hungry feeders I and travel frequently in lines, eating I everything in their path, chewing up ! apparently more than they need for I food. They are slender in form, sotne | what soft bodied, and colored various ly. Stirne species are perfectly black, some are yellow with black stripes, others are of the samp color with several light stripes, some are gray, and others are gray spotted with black. Blister beetles are particularly abund ant in the Southwest, but occur prac tically everywhere. Different species appear at different times, usually after the plants have made about one-third growth, and they continue until late in the season. Control.—Lead arsenate applied at the very outset of attack is the best is of or is V b A White Grub or Larva or Grub; A, May Beetle—E Beetle; B, Pupa. remedy. In some portions of the Southwest lines of men and boys go through fields driving beetles before them until they reach windrows of hay, straw, or other dry vegetable matter previously prepared along the leeward side of the field. The windrow Is then fired and the beetles burned. Plant-Lice. Practically all vegetables, especially cucumbers, cabbages, and peas, suffer considerable damage from attack by small, soft-bodied insects commonly called "lice" or "nphls," but better kDown as plant-lice. These work for the most part on the lower sides of the leaves, which become curled or otherwise deslroyed by loss of their vital juices. They give off a sweet mixture called honeydew, which at tracts ants, flies, and other insects. Plant-lice Increase with great rapidity by the female giving birth to living young. The different kinds vary In color from light to dark green or nearly black, grayish, brown, yellow, and red. They have comparatively long legs and have feelers attached to the head. Some forms have two pairs of transparent or clear wings They feed by sucking juices of the plants through a beak. Familiar ex amples are the melon aphis, pea aphis and cabbage plant-lice. Control.—If the plants are grown under glass, plant-lice may be killed by fumigation with a nicotine prepara tion. The form suitable for this work is paper soaked in nicotine which when lighted canses a smudge Sprinkling plants with fine tobacco dust is of some value, especially if applied early In the morniDg when the dew is on. SOY BEAN IN CROP ROTATION Caah Value of Seed Is Sufficient to Warrant Growing Beans as One of Main Crop«. The soy bean may be combined ad vantageously in many systems of crop rotation. The United States Depart ment of Agriculture says it is especial ly adapted to short rotations, taking either an entire season or part of » season following some grain crop. The cash value of the seed Is sufficient to encourage growing the beans as one of the main crops. When the whole sea son is thus devoted to soy beans, they take any place In a rotation system where corn can be used. at STRAWBERRIES ALL SUMMER Popular Varieties Are Progressive and Superb—Resistant to Leaf-Spot Diseases. Strawberry plants which will con tinue to produce strawberries until hard frosts occur may be grown in all of the northern United States and in the mid-wester- states. The two leading varieties ut this type of straw berry, the progre- 'ie and the superb, are notable beea.i-e they are excep tionally resistant ' leaf-spot diseases. Another remarka e characteristic of those varieties is that if their blooms are killed by frost they soon flower again. Therefore, in sections subject to late spring frosts, which often destroy the crop ihese varieties are particularly valuable.—United States Department of Agriculture. $525 IN PRIZES FOR THE BEST RHYMES A new contest is just being started which will interest every woman and girl who reads this paper.
