I (Q) The aphid-; hatching from the eggs are all female, which give birth to live (?) young, no males occuring during the : f $s summer. j ' Dur Hg her life, which is about a month, the female will give birth "o.) fifty or sixty, the young which !-; (ij) r'n to give birth when about seven days old. It is readily seen that the given bug in this way multiplies very fast, and may do givat damage to th grain crops. For the control of the green bug we are almost entirely dependent on their natural enemies, but the green hugs will multiply during a mild win ter, while the enemies are not able to work. In this way the green bugs reach large numbers and do their lainage. Among the natural enemies of the gren bug is n tiny wasp-like insect th.it deposits eggs in the green bugs, the grub hatching from the egg and feeding internally on the bug and de stroying it. Other natural oncmie. are the lady beetle and a Hy-liKe in sect. There is very little that can b" ef fective in controlling the green hugs. The most important methods are prc- ( vontit'ves. The green bugs live dnr li'.g tiie latter part of the season on 'volunteer oats and wheal until the early sown gr.ni is grown. T 'si ruction of all v dunteer rrain, cs- j . pecially volunteer oats, will prevent j y? I the green bug from living thsinigii !
