GETTING AHEAD OF
THE PLUM CURCULIO
Directions For Controlling Pest'
That Preys on Most of
The plum curculio-which is known
by many names, such as "cherry
weevil," "peach worm," "peach cur
.culio," and "little Turk"-feeds on
practically all stone and pomeo fruits
-apple, peach, plum, pear, quince,
cherry, etc. In South Carolina the
peach and plum crops are seriously
injured by it and the cherry and apple
are attacked to somne extent.
The plum curculio is a small, rough
snout beetle belonging to the inme
class ' of insects as the cotton boll
weevil, grain weevils, and nut weev
ils. It 18 about one-fifth of an inch
in lenigth and( (lark in color. It win

For general control, clean up the
orchard by pruning andl by gathering
and buruning all dead wood, woods,
and trash in or near the orchard. Re.
move all st'one walls or piles of rock
from the orchard. Keep the orchard
clean from weeds and trash during
spring and summer. These practices
reduce the insect's wintering places.
For peaches: About twelve days
