By L. A. Jeivis, Agriculturist Of all the insect pests which infect the Citrus plants there is none more conta"ions ami more difficult to check than the "Black Scale" which appearance is of recent dis covery here, and being new to many of us its destructive habits, rapidity of spreading, the almost incredulous number of eggs deposited on each leaf, and the overlapping of Kerosine emulsion, Whole oil one generation into another soapcompound and, Kerosine 1,. ._ (here beneficial fungus, but whenever the dark appearance of (he leaves are n iticeable the tree is infested This "Black Scale" is social and is seen in groups of 50, 64, 75 and upward*. Indeed I count! d 5a I gg in a coil of aboutone sixteenth of an inch in diameter, in larger coils of 73 and 84. I counted my own experiments to exand clean. The aim of pruning is to allow light to have full play on the (eaves, and inner pails of ihe tree. With a spraj pump, spray iheentii tree, working under but upwards taking caie that the under part ut each leal is thoroughly sprayi d; then outward and upward and finally Upward and downward. Keep the nozz e < lose lo Ihe [< avi 9 for b< si results. Seven daysa/tei Ihe lust spraj ing, spray again when you will find several newly hatched insects, which are unable to fly. Again On the 16th day, give another spraying. By closely following Ihe above instructions you will kill all ihe ins,, it, that the spray conn s ii! contact with. II o w e V e r thoroughly (he spraj ing is done, (here are sine p, 1 e some lo 1 si ape, and ili< se a re a I ways r< sponsible lor (he new outbreak. Backed by the results of experiments conducted in the United States and West Indies also 50 coils 011 one leaf, allow ing each cod to hatch 50 eggs, we shall have 2500 insects to the leaf; therefore an average fruit tree would contain mil lions of insects and these producing 4 to J broods in a j ear will give an idea of the tremendous task of obliterating them. This "Black Scale" is found in India whence it is supposed to have been introduced into the United States, we have them here whether imported or not, to control and kill we are to work with a consistent diligence. During the past few weeks, 1 sprayed infected trees with an hardly be comprehended. Notwithstanding the tinfin'shed stage of my observations and experiments in checking and eradicating this pest, I will give a few facts which probably will ave your lime, trees nmd onev. Tins "Black Scaje" le s emulsion with Carbolic Acid. Under certain conditions these insecticides prove very effective; however their uses are not complete Spraying: liefore spraying, prune off all dead wood, all weak or worthless branches, also those that crowd the centre of the trees Gormandizers or fside suckers) should be cut off even it they are healthy tei minate this inset I pesl I decided that spraying alone is too slow a method to cope with sofast spreading an insect. To meet this difficulty two days after spraj ing the infested trees, I cut off all the leaves, leaving the trees bare save for 1 In young buds. The leaves are immediately collected and burnt, by this method, billions are killed. along with their incubators, as soon as the new leav< sare formed I spray them with half strength insecticide, this should be done at least once a week until the orchard is cleared. To encourage and strengthen the trees loosen the soil from the base of the stem to the outer circle of the leaves, removing the loose soil until the feeding roots are reached, fill the circle by ,; l"< ing alltemately layers of manure and soil, water the trees, keep a vigil eye for insects and leave the rest to nature.

will be based on Mr. Lansing's
interpretation of the treat) be

the treaty makes it necessarj
that the Appam be declared .1
(.eim n prize and, therefore,
not to be interned or restricted

is too slow a method to cope
with sofast spreading an in-

The leaves are immediately
collected and burnt, by this
method, billions are killed.

as soon as the new leav< sare

a week until the orchard is

strengthen the trees loosen
the soil from the base of the
stem to the outer circle of the
leaves, removing the loose
soil until the feeding roots
are reached, fill the circle by
