The most Heozian f1jtjio during-the 1920$ 4urvey were fo-und in a
group of counties starting from Delaware on the eaEt andt extending

held. true. in '1925 and the infestation occur-ringz there seerns to be
largely duc to -%oluntecr r'heat and a few early-sovn fiejids. Control campaigns will be concentrated in this loroup of counties this fall.
The average infestation for the entire State this 'y~ar is 8,8 per

Wisconsin S. B. Fracker (August 15):.Apparently less troublesome than usual,
but infestation has been running as high as 20 per cent in
Winnebago, and in Manitowoc 35 per cent.

Missouri L. Baseman (August 27): The second brood of the codling moth
began to emerge at about its normal time,namely,July 7 to
15 for central Missouri but the brood continued to emerge until
early August.
Second-brood side worms are unusually abundant therefore
where only one July spray was applied early. The prolonged emergence
has made it difficult for Missouri Spple growers to control the
pest this year.

APPLE AND THORN SKELETONIZER (Hemerophila -ariana Clerck)

Massachusetts A. I. Bourne (August 19): Within the last few days we have begun
to note full-grown larvae in scattering numbers here and there it :this vicinity (Amherst). The scarcity of this insect this
season may be accounted for by the fact that fruit growers have
been giving more attention to their spraying and have been spraying later in the season than has been their custom up to this time. The
first of the second-brood moths were observed flying August 19.
FALL WEBWCRM (Hphantria cunea Drury)

Massachusetts A. I. Bourne (August 19): The fall webworm has been for the last
two weeks making itself apparent. As near as we could determine from our observations, the pest is present in about normal abundance. There has been a very wide range in the development of
the larvae. It has been possible to find, in a comparatively small
area, larvae which were two-thirds or more grown, and also, on almost adjoining trees, others which had emerged within a week.

Connecticut J. L. Rogers (August 24): Many more tents were observed in nurseries
this month than usual in Fairfield and Hartford Counties. There
has been a slight increase over last year.

RUIT TREE LEAF ROIER (rchip- ar~rospila Walk.)

Missouri L. Baseman (August 27): The apple trees in the nursery row and
young trees in the orchard have been quite severely attacked
by the leaf roller though the epidemics have not been so severe
in central Missouri this year as they were last year.

local areas. In North Carolina general light ::eevil infestation
is reported, with heavy infestations in restricted areas.

Alabama J. M. Robinson (August 6): Boll weevils in the northern part of
the State hav-e done a-proximately no damage but they are quite abundant in restricted territaies in the southern and central
parts ,

Mississippi R. W~. Harned (Atgust Ig)! With rainy, cloudy weather prevailing
in many sections since the first of the month, boll weevils have
multiplied rapidly, causing heavy damage in many counties. An
average infestation of about 10 pe r cent was found on all farms
examined by the State Plant Board inspectors during the past week, with many infestations running from 25 to 50 per cent. The extreme
northern counties still report very few weevils.

Louisiana V. F. Hinds (August 24): Boll weevils are increasing rapidly throughout the State, come heav-y infestations now being reported from the
northern section - in territory that has been nearly free from
weevils during 1924 and 1925, These ree-ils will be in time to
reduce the yields considerably unless prcp applications of poison pe ap e~ations of poison
are made,

Texas F. C. Bishopp (August 27): The b1Al weevil is causing heavy damage
to irrigated cotton in this section (Christoval). Practically all
squares and many bolls frcm small to nearly full grown are infested.
At Mason, on August 23, the weevil was causing heavy damage to
irrigated cotton. Practically all squares and many bolls from small
to nearly full grown were infested. Considerable boll weevil damage
at Brownwood on August 24. Many half grown bolls and practically
all squares punctured. Fields in this section (Stephenville) show
from 10 to 80 per cent of the squares to be infested with boll weevils and some fields have many of the small bolls punctured,

COTTON FLEA HOPPER (Psallus seriatus Reut.)

GENE 71.L Cooperative report on cotton insects (August 16): Reports indicate STATEmIENT that flea hoppers are no longer active on cotton in most sections
but in a few localities they are still present and doing damage.
Hopper damage, varying from light to heavy, has been reported in
practically all portions of the cotton belt. Normal fruiting after
hoppers ceased iork on cotton has been extremely variable. In some cases recovery wars prompt whereas in others it has been vei.y slow.

North Z. P. Metcalf (July 29): The cotton lee_ hopper situation seems
Carolina to be graually clearing up in this State although it is still bad
in some sections. This insect produces a characteristic stunted
appearance of the cctton plants.

South J. 0. Pepper (Angast !;): Cotton flea infestations and damage
Carolina increased during August in the Piedmont Section.


Alabama J. 'I Sobinson (1uust 6): Eari cus sT cies of cotton flea
hopper have been very active on cotton.

ississippi Re We Hrned (August 1S): At this date it is very difficult to
find cotton hcopers in iolds in this locality (A. & M. College) that were heavily infested all through July. The hoppers are now
very abundant on c2oton, but none can be found on horsemint,
;hich is practically all dead at this time. Hoppers were very
abundant on horsemint during June and July.

Louisiana U E, Hinds (August 24): The cotton flea hoppers have ceased
their -ork upon cotton in most sections, but many of the infested
fields have not recovered normal fruiting, The rork of these
insects delayed the setting of fruit very greatly in many cases;
and large -reas in northern Louisiana were seriously ffected.
Fields dusted with sulphur early in the season for flen-hopper
control came into fruiting generally some weeks earlier than
undusted fields, But it takes at least 10 days longer for blooming
to be resumed generally in the flea-hopper infested fields than
where "co:c-late infestation" by the boll weevil is controlled
by poison.

Texas F. Co 3ishopo (August 27): Cotton fle- hoppers were observed on
cotton in Nol .n, Tom Green, and Menird Counties. Apparently the damage caused by these insects rwas not so great as that in many
sections of the eastern part of the State,

COTTON LEAF ORM ( Albamn ar~rillacea Hbn.)

GEiTRAL Copperative report on cotton insects (August 16): The leaf worm
STaTEMENT has defoliated precticl ly all cotton in south-central Texas
that has not been poisoned, and defoliction is common in the north-central and northeastern portions although much poison
is being applied in these sections, In Oklahoma leaf worms
are reported in the southeastern portions, with some defoliation.
In Arkansas leaf worms are reported as destructive in some
eastern and central count .es. In Louisiana defoliation is reported
as common in scattered areas throughout the State where poison has not been applied. In Mississipoi worms are reported present in nearly all sections of the State, Some defoliation has been reported in southwestern Tennessee. In Alabaa worms have been
reported in scattered are-s in the northern and western portions,
with come defoliction. In nost of the infested area the Forrs are now in the Dupal stage with a few; moths emerging. The next
ge.nerl'ticn of worms is expected to appear about September 1.

Alabama L. W.. 3rsnon (August 23)t This insect is seriously damaging
cotton in a 10-acre field near the City limits of Birmingham,

Mississiori R, W. Hr-rned (August 1g): Aoout August 10, the cotton worm
appeared in practically every county in northern Mississippi
and in several spots in the southern part of the State. The supply

PERIODICAL CICADA (Tibicina seeotendecim var.cannini Fisher)
Kansas J. W7. M cColloch (July 26): Specimens of the 17-year cicada
were taken on June 9, at Wathena, by Mr. L, M. Gates, nursery
inspector for the Kansas Entomological Commission, but owing
to the fact that Mr. Gates is in the field most of the time the specimen-was not brought to my attention until some weeks later.
Mr. Gates stated that these cicadas were quite numerous in certain
areas around Wathena. (Determination made by W. L. McAtee).

71EHITE-MAFR1ED TUSSCCK MOTHi (Hmerocampa leucostiama S.&.A.)

Ohio E, W. Mendenhall (August 27): I find the white-marked tussock moth

Wisconsin S, B. Fracker (August 15): An active campaign of creosoting egg

these insects at Milwaukee. A similar campaign about 1921 at
La Crosse was sudCessful but after a lapse of four years the
larvae are again appearing,
