Plow Grasshopper Under.
Prof. Swenk, associate state entom
ologist, is out in warning to Nebraska
farmers to look out for grasshoppers
this year. Ho says the damage done
by grasshoppers has been steadily in
creasing for several years and tho dry
season of 1911 was especially favorable
for them. He recommends early and
deep plowing as a means of extermina
tion. The eggs are laid in pods near
the surface and he says if the ground is
plowed deeply before tho insects hatch
the eggs will be be buried bo deeply
the young grasshoppers cannot make
their way to tho surface. He particu
larly warns farmers against permitting
land to go with out plowing at all, as
under such conditions a big crop of
grasshoppers is almost certain.
