IS NOT A rORjpKABLE PEST Can Mntfrlallr DnmnRe nn Apple Orchiird, bnt Ttlrlr Ability to Dcvnatnte Arna la Often Overestimated, Nebraska is apt in danger this year of the grasshopper plague pr a visitation of the seventeen-year docusts, according to Myron 11. Swenk, assistant state entomo logist. The seventein-year cicada, or locust, he says, appeared In large numbers about June 1 In the southeastern portion of the state and the field Investigation of tho state university department of entomi- logy showed them to be present along the Missouri riven from Florence south through" Omaha,' Nebraska City and Union, and west frorh, the river as far as South Bend along tho Platte, Nc hawka, Dunbar And eastern Johnson county. The department expected the locust to appear this year, especially Jn this ter ritory, because It was present there In large numbers In JSCS. it is not, to be looked upon as a lor mldabje, .Jest," says Swenk. "f.t Is con sidered Injurious, ' of course, In apple -orchards, where, by laying Its eggs In theJ last year s growth, it, pay kuj dock pot tlons of this growth. How'eVcr, to do much damage It must appear In vfry large numbers qnd t)ie orchards must be at least 17 years, old to harbor thorn "Only a very few orchards' )h the state are heavily enough jnfected to be appreciably .damaged." Bays Swenk, "and it Js not UHely that thcyi will have any marked effect on the gcrlernl apple crop this year. The .present season sq far has shown no indlcattonn nf' nvrnicintva num. bers of grasshoppers. The many hcavyl rums oiive ,uiea most or tnem. and what Is left will glvo very little trouble. "Much of the discussion about ffrassi hoppers an seventeen-year locusts,"' sayB owenK, -is based on misinforma tion and Imagination.
