was struck by a fly swatter, which accounts for the'

to learn whether the eggs had been deposited. Magnified

THE' discovery. in Florida of. the
Mediterranean fruit' fly, un-
doubtedly the most dangerous
fruit insect in tropical and sub-trop-
ical climates, has naturally aroused
in the minds of the growers much
*interest in this insect. The follow-
ing notes are given th acquaint tihe
growers with the appearance of the,
insect, character of its .injury, .and
the main points in its life history.
The adult is a fly. considerably
smaller than the common house fly,
about the size of the horn fly so,
common about cattle. The abdomen
of the insect, particularly of the fe-
male, is very broad, almost roundish
in appearance but the end is- ab-,
ruptly. constricted into a. very con-
spicuous point, the egg-laying ap-
paratus. The insect is a very pretty
object as viewed under a lens, the
thorax being marked conspicuously-
with glistening white areas which
shine lilie burnished silver in the
sun. The .wings are conspicuously
marked with diagonal brown bands
more or less fringed. with black
lines. The veins of the wings arp
also jet black. -
When ona the fruits the females.
hold their.wipgsin' a very character-
istic manneer.,.-They are. allowed to'
droopd divin until.their tips 'iest on
the surface of the fruit. No common
fly in citrus groves -carries its wings
in this-mannerl The flies are rather
sluggish, particularly when laying
eggs on. a fruit but when alarmed
can dart- away at good speed.' They
are inactive on cold mornings. On'
the unusually cold moriiing of April
17th 'they did hot appear in hum-
bers until about. 11 o'clock. The
adult insect feeds upon 'the fruit
juices, sues juice as .may exude
