INSECT PEST SURVEY BULLETIN


Vol. 9 August 1, 1929 Ho. 6


OUTSTANDI E"r .ET"OLOGICAL TEATT'.2S 11T `:: UNITED STATES FOR JULY, 1929

Th vediterraneen fruit fly as reported last month from southern
Duval, eastern Levy, Hcrn-rndo, Pnd*Pasto Countiers, in addition to the
counties reported in the last number of the. Survey Bulletin. These -re
all contiguous to the counties already reported. `1o infested Florida
fruit vas reported as having been discovered at points outside of the
State during. the month.

The grasshopper situation reported in the last number of the Sur-
vey Bulletin has not materially changed. urin- the month rather intense
though limited outbreaks developed in southern 1Trth Dakota tnd parts of
South Dakota and Nebrarskn. Smnall outbreaks also developed over a .,ide
area in central Texas. Further der&dations b- the eastern lubber ress-
hopper were reported from the Gulf region.

.'ireworm trouble continues to be reported from practically the
entire country extending from Maine to "'ashin,-ton, and southw-ard to North
Carolina and Missouri.

The --ale western cutworm, after a subsidence of several years, is
again appearing in outbreak numbers in ,Torth r,:-.ota and severe depreda-
tions by other species of cutworms have been received from Maine, 1ew
York, and most of the States in the ''isississippi V3alley.

2-e Hessian fly survey for the Stt:t of O'hio has been comr.lted
and shows a decrease of average infest -tion for the area su;rveyed f-om
13.5 per cent in 19121 to 3.4 -oer cent this yc-r. Although the ssirn
fly was subnormally abundant in I>issouri and iKns this year thece are
decided indications of heavy infest- tion on early-planted wheat in these
States this fall.

It ic estimated that the wh.>3t strp-: worm has reduced thC Kan-
sas wheat crop over 10,000,000 bushels.

?r corn e,.:r worrm -ut in its z-o-c'r:-nce in noticeable numbers as

The bertha armyworm, Ba.rathra confirurata dalk., is infesting a
variety of field and garden c-ops and weeds in southeastern British Colum-
bia. There was a general infestation of this species over the interior
of British Columbia last year.

Scattered outbreaks of the red-backed cutworm, Euxoa ochropaster
Ouen,,.have been recorded from southern sections of Ma.nitoba, Saskatchewan,
and Alberta. An unusual absence of cutworm injury this spring is recorded
from the Ckgnaearn Valley, British Columbia. In :I'v; Brunswick the greasy
cutworm,Agrotis v-psilon Rott., attacked potatoes, sunflowers, turnips,
and corn, on farms in ie," Brunswick, along the St. John River, in York
and Sunbury Counties, early in July.

The Colorado potato beetle is reported as more abundant than
usual in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, and in the Ottawa district,
Ontario. In Manitoba it is said to be scarcer than usual and has been re-
ported in destructive numbers only in a few places.

In southwestern Alberta and southeastern British Columbia, the
onion maggot, Hylemyia antiqua meig. ,and the cabbage maggot, F. brassicae
Bouche, are reported as much less abundant and destructive than in 1922.
The onion maggot is also reported as less abundant than is previous
years in the Ottawa district, Ontario.

Up to mid-July there had been much less dao-.ge by insects in
Nova Scotia orchards than for a considerable number of years.

A severe infestation of the Luro-oan a-ple sucker, PsvlliL Mali
Schmid., has been found a fe'. miles eact and a few miles west of Annapolis,
Nova Scotia. This record indicates the most westerly point
where appreciable numbers are found.

The apple curculio, Tachypterellus quadrigibbus Say, has caused
severe damage to pears in certain orchards in the Salmon Arm district,
British Columbia. This insect had not previously been recorded as a fruit
pest in this section. The apple curculio also has been particularly nu-
merous this year in orchards in the province of Quebec.

The plum curculio has caused more injury in Quebec apple orchards
than in the previous several years.

Considerable numbers of first-generation lnrvac of the apple and
turn skeletonizer have been noticed in the Ann-oolis district, ,ova
4cotia, and an outbreak is anticipated ",hen the second generation appears.

Another heavy infestation of the hemlock looper is indicated in
the Trinity Bay district on the north shore of the St. Lawrence, Quebec,
during this season. A large area of balsam heavily defoliated last year
is expected to die in the Manikuagan River area. The outbreak of this
s-'ecies is in its second year at Indian River and Burrard Inlet, British
Columbia, and probPbly much of the hemlock will be killed. In addition





-216-


to hemlock many other coniferi:,.s trees and deciduous plants are affec'.:-d.

Severe outbreaks of the satin moth and tent caterpillars have
resulted in the total defoliation of hundreds of acres of brz'-h and cot-
ton'rood stands in t western half of the lower Eraser Valley, British
Columbia. In the Lloydminster district, 'katchewan the forest tent
caterpillar caused prob-bly totpl defoliation of aspn roplars. .'. out-
break appears to be extendin,- eastward each yecr 2nd r,'rssitcs are r'.u-
ally checklin7 the tent catcr-,ill'rs in older infestations.

In the Barkerville and Stanley region of British Columbia, th-.- in-
festation of the s-ruce bud-rorm has been retarded by cold weather and rain.

The tussock moth He .ero,_'-j nseudotsurata !.c., which in 1?2
vwas reported around a ranch house in the 3. X. district, 5 miles north-
east of Vernon, British Colu-mbia, has spread considerably and is now at-
tac'-:ir,' areas of Dou-las fir on the mountain side.

Adults of the fall vwebr'ormr are unusu-.lly ab- nd-nt in the lover
Fraser Valley, British Columbia, and a severe outbreak of this defoliator
is in prospect lattrtin the ye-r.

Reports from ov- Scotia, Ont-rio, Manitoba, Saskatchean,and
British Columbia indicate thn-t mosquitoes are much less tr oublesome in the
Dominion this year than in 1938. This is probably lar-gely due to sub-
normal rainfall in eerly sumn ur.

J. .XLcColloch (July 12): Kansas Crop Report (released
July 11). "The prEspect declined considerably over June 1,
and part of the decline is attributed to wheat straw -orm an'd
Hessian fly." Personally, I think at least 50 per cent of the
decline is due to these two insects. (July 22): A general
light infestation is to be found over most of the wheat belt
of Kansas. Damage to the 1929 crop was generally light, but
there are enough flax-seed present to indicate an impending
outbreak.

A. E. Stone (June 26)! Peaches in severalorchards examined
are badly infested. There is likely to be considerable
trouble again this year, probably more than last.

C. R. Crosby and assistants (July): Oriental fruit moth in-
jury began to show up in Orange County during the last week
in June and by the first neck in July was observed in Dutchess,
Ulster, and Chautauqua Counties and by the middle of the month
in Niagara County.

E. N. Cory (July 24): Moderately abundant; varies in dif-
ferent localities.

i-. H. Schoene (July 24): Peaches in the Crozct and Roanoke
sections are being damaged. It is reported that 20 per cent
of the varieties now being harvested. in the Roanoke section
have been damaged.

T. L. Guyton (July 20): Very abundant. TwTig injury to
peach trees scattered over all the orchards where the insect
is known to occur.

0. I. Snapp (July 19): Infestations have become heavier
during the last month nea Fort Valley, although little dam-
age has been done.

E. ,7. ^,ndenhall (July 2): Considerable damage to peach
trees in Miami County and apparently in southwestern Ohio is
being noticed. Larvae were found in plum also in this sec-
tion. (July 18): Very bad on peach in Fairfield County;
the dying back of twigs is quite noticeable.

T. H. Parks (July 25): The oriental fruit moth is more
abundant than last yc-r in most counties. Peaches arriving on
the market are wormy and trees show much twig injury.
Otta7q County, where the insect was v-ry scarce last year,
has no fruit this year, but the insect is common in the twigs
there now, according to Mr. Stearns of the Ohio experiment
Station.

J. J. Davis (July 22):: The oriental fruit moth is increas-
ing in former infested areas and in addition to previous re-
cords it has been found at Bedford and Terre Haute, whers. it
was very abundant in peach twigs in a back yard.

W. P. Flint (July 22): Moth of the third brood began emrg-
ing July 27 in southern Illinois. The infestation is light.
There has been a general increase of twig infestation over
last year in the peach sections which had practically no in-

County, there has bcun no increase over last year as yet.

R. H. PFttit (July 12): Second--tncration larvae have ap-
peered in .azhtenaw County.

R. WV. Harned (July 23): Peach twigs that have evidently
been injured by the larvae have been received during the past
month from Lauderdale, Quitman, Hinds, Chickasaw, Clay, Pike,
Bolivar, and Prentiss Counties.

ally are finiri: it a difficult pest to control.

C. C. Crosby rnd assistants (July): The plum curculio is
quite prevalent and in m'n-.y cases unusually destructive in
the lower Hudson River Valley, damage boing very noticeable
on cherry. In the N'Tiagara district peaches se. med to have
been more seriously d'-a .d than in many yc-rs.

T. L. 3uyton (July 20): Very abundant. It is scattered
over oll orchards in the infested territory.

P. J. Chapman (July 24): Modcrateiy al.Lid:nt in home or-
chards near i4orfolk.

to pick up drops, and to mild winter, permitting survival of
adult curculios.

0. I. Snapp (July 19): Second-generation larvae caused much
damage to the SElberta crop. Other varieties escaped s econd-
brood attack. The infestation in the Georgia peach belt vas
heavier this year than at any time since 1921, and many com-
plaints of !,ormy fruit were heard. Again the curculio is a
serious problem in Georgia.

'7P. P. Flint (July 22): he plum curculio is still moder-
ately abundant and still found in almost as large numbers as
at any time this season. Curculios from drop-peach cages have
bezm emerging since June 25, with a peak on July 3, which will
be about one month before Elberta harvest. Considerable feed-
ing had been done -hen put in cages on peach trees.

H. C. Scvcrin (July 12): There is v.;ry severe damaogo to
plum every year, and this ycar is no exception.

CITRUS

:.2DITEMA IEAJN FW'IT FLY (Ceratitis capitata -eid.)

Florida Plant quarantine and Control Administration (July 31):
In addition to the counties reported last month, the fruit
fly has been found in southern Duvrl County and in the
eastern parts of Levy, Hernando, and Pasco aountizs, re-
snectively. ThE6 total number of infested properties (in-
cluding to"'n lots) is now about 1,000. No infested Florida
fruit was reported as having been discovered at points out-
side that State during the month.
A poison bait spray is being applied at weekly intervals
throughout the infested zones, that is, the area included
within one mile of infested premises. Progress has been
made in bringing about the total elimination of host fruits
and vegetables in the infested zones and in making the pro-
tective zones host free for the sunrmer. A most important -o ;
of the work under way is that which consists of the elimi-
nation of wild -nd escaped host fruits on uncultivated land.
No host fruits or vegetables were shiiped from Florida
during July except a limited number of cars of host vegeta-
bles (largely pepp-ers and ego-plants) from those parts of
the State outside infested and protective zones, and a fe.':
cars of oranges from cold storage.

AN ANT (Solenopsijs saevissima richteri Forel)

Alabama H. P Loding (July 15): This ant has for several years
