Edinburg a at'tacking- potr~tocs June 11. Since that date reports have bee-n received from LaPorte, Bu-alington, Amo, :Dan_,ville, Seyracuar L'y et a,-te, Brow:,nsburg, Russlaville, INew Rcss, India-narolis, and Crn'-frds-v.ille, -here it has been repoorted as attackinET corn.
At 7ndianaolis notable *dama,! e to tomatoes f-as reported. App,,ar
ently this 'borer is rather ,,idespread tirwroughouat the State.
The lateness of the corn and small siz-e of the borers at the present tim-ie indicate that considerable damage w7il result. This
'borer is becoming an annual pest and should emphasize the im-portance of better farm practices.

Ne-, York E. P. Felt 'June 24): Various plant lice have been abundant durin- the past two weeks on elms maples, and lindens and the rosy ephid somewhat nunerous upon apple trees in various sections of the ,tate. The woolly elm lea-f aQhid has also been abundant in some localities. Plant lice are very numerous on tea and hybrid perpetual roses at Rochester and other species upon a number of
trees and shrubs (R. E. Horsey).

Indiana J. J. Davis (June 2): Apple aphids have not shown up very abundantly
At Bedford, April 10, stem mothers and a few young of A-his avenae were present on almost every cluster and likewise with every aphid colony rvas an egg or larva of a syrphid, Syrphus americana. When the same orchard mas visited again, May 2 and again M ay 20, the aphids of this species were practically eliminated. On April 10 in the same orchard a single stem mother of the rosy apple aphid ras observed. On M;ay 22 occasional clusters were to be found, and apparently the first winged form appeared that day. (June 24): Probably the most conspicuous outbreak of the .:th is the comeback
by Aphididae. Aphids are exceedingly abundant everywhere and on everything. The rosy apple aphid is spotted according to our observations, but the green apple aphid occurs in large numbers. They are especially destructive to young trees and small trees
which were top-worked following the severe blight damage last year. Cherry is also heavily infested with the black cherry aphid. Shade trees of many kinds are infested and include linden, boxelder, and

:issouri A. C. Burrill (2.ay 31): The brown anhid on grapevines is epidemic,
just as the brown plum aphid, previously reported, continues in quite serious epidemic, also some black aphid on shepherd's-purse. (June 10): Syrnhids and lady beetles are not attacking plant lice generally.


APPLE APHID (Aphis 2pomi DeG.)

Connecticut I. P. Zapoe (June 22): Coccinellid larva- and syrphid larvae are no
present in sufficient numbers to hold aphids in check. It is early in the season and not very many aphids are present but they have be increasing rapidly in the last few reeks.

Tllinois ". P. liat (June 20): The green a-ole aphid is quite abundant in
the southern and central sections of the State. It is causing some damage to nurseries.

ROSY APPLE APHID (An.urarhis roses Thker)

onnecticut L. P. Zappe (June,1927): Those have increased rather fast since
early spring. More abundant than usual -ith coccinfllids and syrphid parasites present.

OOLLY APPLE APHID (Eriosoma lani-erum Hausm.)

ndiana J. T. Davis (June 24): The -oolly apple aphid is very abundant i-n
orchards of southern Indiana. This is especially noticeable in
breaks and cuts on the branches of small trees where injured earlier in the season by hail.

CODLING iMOTH (Carpocausa momonella L.)

hio E. W. Lendenhall (June 17): Codlin:; moth adults are emerging in
large numbers at Columbus. The arsenate of lead spray should be
put on no"-.

Indiana J. J. Davis (June 2): The codling moth situation is again serious.
Winter mortality was apparently negligible. first moths -ere obser-ed at Bedford Iay 2. L. F. Steiner observed the first eggs at Bedford ay Q, but none hatched until May 21, owin-T to cool rainy weather. B. A. Porter observed first larvae at Vincennes, May 20.
The freeze destroyed a large percentage of the apples in south-' ern Indiana and many orchardists are neglecting their regular sprays.
It is a question, therefore, whether the scarcity of fruit will materially lessen the codling moth menace for the next year. (June
24): The codling moth situation is serious in southern Indiana.
B.ercence extended over a long period because of cool weather and
as a result there will be no distinct period between hatching of
first-brood "'orms and those of the second brood.
llinois 7. P. Flint (June 20): Adults of the overwintering brood of the
codlin- moth have practically ceased to emerge in southern and central Illinois. Emergence took place over a long period and comparatively few e.-gs were laid owing to the cool nights. UTp to June 10
it was very difficult to find apples showing entrances. Mr. Chandler took the first larvae under bands in southern Illinois during
the week of June 13. Most commercial orchards are very free from
injury by this insect up to this date.
lissouri A. C. Burrill (June ): There seems to be little codling moth noted in this river valley section.

Cansas R. L. Parker (June 20): About 50 per cent mortality over -inter in
the orchard region near Troy. Better control is expected this -eor
since the weather is not so dry and hot. This pest wintered over
very successfully about T7ichita. It emerged with sli ht mortalit".
At Belle Plaine south of here it is a continuous round of spraying
to partially control this insect.


Montana W. P. Miabee (June 17): On June 3 overwintering larvae and some
pupae were found in the orchard home section near Missoula, Liv ing specimens vere considerably easier to find than usual at this

Washington E. J. New:comer (June 1): First adults of the codling moth were
observed :iay 4. Continued cool w-eather during the latter half of :'ay has prevented oviposition, and this, together with some IrintE mortality, should make the codling moth a less serious pest in tk Pacific Yorthwest this year than for several years past, Unfavor able weather has made it difficult for growers to apply the caly) spray at the right time. The first favorable weather for oviposi
tion of any consequence occurred May 31 and June 1.

APPLE AND THOIT SKELETOIZER (Hemerophila mariana Clerck)

laine J. V. Schaffner r. (June 31): A collection of larvae of the apt
and thorn skeletonizer was sent in June 20 from Glenburn, by
'.uarantine Inspector A. C. Eard.- He reports that they are plenti
ful on apple in this locality.

:lassachuasetts A. I. Bourne (June 20): The apple tent caterpillar has been aboj
as abundant as last year. No appreciable increase in abunda-.c has been reported from any section. If anything, there has ee: a slight decrease in their numbers. At the time of our Aoril report, I gave some preliminary figures relative to po'racitism. that time -ie have dra-wn deductions of counts rom about
1,00 eg--cs of this insect and found that the average parasitism
for this number was 7.22 per cent. The egg masses howed a1
avera. natch.of between 85 and 86 per cent. The am.out of parasitism :av found to vary considerably according to'*c masses,
ran.i:.g from 0 up to 27 or 28 per cent. From the average percent age of parasitism, however, it rould not appear that 7e could depend on the natural enemies of this insect to reduCe it material by the next season. The larvae had, by early June, for the mest ,.irt, completed feeding and had begun to cral about. The first
cocoons were noted about the 12th to 14th.

Mississippi R. U. Harned (June 22): Complaints accompanied by specimens of
the insects continue to be received at this office in regard to
the rough-headed cornstalk beetle or sugarcane beetle. Corn and sugarcane are the crops bein, injured in most cases, although in one or t'-o instances cotton stalks have been attacked. One man reported that 75 per cent of his sugarcane had been injured by

FERIODICL CICADA (Tibicina sentendecim L.)

Test A.D. Hopkins (iay 2S): The periodical cicade is here (anawha
Virginia Farms, I:ineral': ell) in limited numbers. The only record 'we
have for its appearance in est Virginia is for 1395 in GCrant, Hardy, Pendeltcn, and Randolph Counties. It was predicted in
my "77 '1, Bu0'i '7 "
my Va. Bulletin DS, p. 279 for 1910 in all of Rest v7irginia
counties bordering Tirginia.

L. :.. Peairs (June 15): I got some specimens from a hitherto
unrecorded locality for this brood at RPeedsville, Preston County.
Mr. Rumsey later visited the locality and did not find any of
the insects so it is apparent that they are scarce. There is no
doubt about the occurrence, thou,h, as I have two specimens.

HITE- D 7JSSOCK ::C10TH (oaemerocama leucosti ma S.& a.)

Tew York Felt (June '4) 7hite-n-:arked tussock maoth caterpillars
are just hatchin- in buffalo and relatively fe-, compared it
earlier years (-. T. Clark, City Forester, June 15). This insect -,as reported as hatching at Rochester at the end of -ay
and it has developed very slo-ly, partly owing to the cool
weather anud more likely to the early thorough spraying (R. 7.

)hio E. -,. Iendenhall (June 2): The nhite-marked tussock moth began
to show its work on the sycamore and elm trees along the streets
in Springfield. The partly grown caterpillars can readily be
be destroyed by arsenical poisons.
