Hessian Fly Survey at Harvest-time, 1938


Field surveys made by.the Bureau of Entomoloy and Plant Quarantine
field stations at Manhattan and Wichita, Kans., Lafayette, Ind., and Carlisle,
Pa., and the State agricultural experiment stations of Illinois, Ohio, Oklahoma,
and Nebraska indicate that hessianm fly populations are from low to moderate in
Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Illinois, the southern half of Indiana,
central Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, western and south-central Pen-sylvania, Mary-
land, Delaware, and Virginia. However, there are man'icin- populations of flies
in local fields and arens in most of t',c.-e States or districts.

1-hirkod increase of the hessian fly has occurred throughout the northern
half of Indiana and the nortbh:eostorn counties of Ohio. Adherence to the- safe
seedirn datcs is particularly advisable for these districts.

Sliht-to-moderate increases of fly infestations are recorded for central
Ohio, eastern mand northern Pennsylvania, northwestern and south-central Virginia,
and north-central North Carolina, with moderate-to-.severe infestations likely
to occur in the fall of 1938 in Pennsylvania -nd North Carolina.

The summarized data below and the accompanying map indicate more fully
the regions covered by the survey and the general trend of fly infestations. A
field sample in the survey usually consisted of 50 wheat stems.
