RED SPIDER CAUSES MUCH INJURY TO FRUIT Can Be Controlled By Dusting or Spraying During the Summer Months. An insignificant looking insect, but one that sometimes is very injurious to fruit trees is the red spider, accord ing to B. S 2 ymoniak, associate horti culturist, Extension Division, Louisi ana State University. "A large number of insects of the red spider species infests the under surface of the leaves and produces a spotted, yellow, sickly appearance, which finally results in the leaven drop ping off," says Mr. Szymoniak. "There are two kinds of red spider that are found on fruit trees. One is known as the yellow mite and the other as-the brown mite. The yellow ir.ite is about the size of a pinhead or smaller and spins a fine web en the under surface of the leaves ■ under which it lives, multiplies and sucks the ■juices from the plants. The brown mite is brownish red in color, has a flat, back and is of about the same niz9 as the yellow mite, but does not 3pin a web. The brown raite lives on tho twigs and branches, to which it doqs the most damage by sucking the sap. "The only.satisfactory way to con trol the red spider is to dust or spray with sulphur during the summer months. Dry, finely pulverized sul phur known as 'flowers of sulphur,' or atomic sulphur, is very effective. It is important to apply the sulphur at least once a month during the summer months if best results are to be ob tained, beginning the application dur ing the last week in May. It may be applied in powder form or in solution, using about four pounds to 50 gallons of water. "The grower should take care of hi» trees during the Stimmer months bp spraying to control insect and diseases. The spraying keeps the foliage in a healthy condition, thereby resulting in fixer quality of fruita." PREPARING AND USING BORDEAUX MIXTURE The solution which is us^d general ly for spraying plants to prevent the attack of diseases is that known as Bordeaux mixture. This solution 1* made of quick lime, copper 3ulphaio (bluestone) and water in the follow ing proportions: Copper sulphate (biuoatone) ..4 lbs. Quick Lime ...................4 Ib3. Water ......................50 gals. The copper sulphate is dissolved in twenty-five gallons of water in a wooden vessel. Metallic vessel* should not be used an the solution will be ruined by the action of tho copper sulphate on the metal. Usual ly the copper sulphate in put in a cloth sack and suspended in the wa ter. It wHl all go into solution in about twenty-four hours. The lime is slaked slowly in a small amount of water, and after it Is com pletely slaked enough water la added to make twenty-five gallons. The copper sulphate and lime solu tions will keep indefinitely if they are kept separate. They should not be mixed until tho day the spraying' is to be done. The Bordeaux mixture is obtained by mixing equal amounts of tho above two solutions. These should be mix ed îa a woodèn tub or barrel. The best mixture ia obtained by pouring the two solutions at the Hams time into a third vessel. The solutions should be thoroughly stirred just be töre mixing. The Bordeaux mixture should be thoroughly stirred just before pour ing into the spray pump. It shou-d also be strained to get out any solid particles that might clog the nozzle. The Bordeaux mixture should bo put upon the plants In the form of a very fine spray. Iû order to obtain this spray, a regular spray pump should be used. Plants should be sprayed at inter vals of a week or ten days during the periods) that infection is liable to occur. Bordeaux mixture will not cure a plant that is already infected with a disease; it -will cxily prevent the infection. Bordeaux mixture will prevent such diseases as occur upon the leaves of plants. Example's of such diseases are: cantaloupe mildew', onion mil dew, early blight of tomatoes, eg.T plant leaf spot, rose leaf spot, etc. Tt will not prevent diseases that attack the plants through the soil, as for ex ample, tomato wilt, cotton wilt, ldt tuco drop, pepper blight, etc.— C.
