French Scientists Dreed Insects and
Birds That Are Enemies of Fruit
There Is a quaint institution in Men
tone, in the south of France, known
as the Insectarlum, where lenrncd pro
fessors are rearing various species of
bugs and other insects.
Mcntono Is in the center of an im
portant fruit-growing district, ami tho
object is to discover the best means of
fighting those Insect pests that prey
upon plants and ruin the fruit.
Tho orchards have suffered severely j
through the ruvnges of the mealy bug, ,
and the fruit growers were becoming '
quite alarmed. Then exports discov
ered thnt three other species of bug j
are the natural enemies of the mealy.
So these arc being bred and reared
and turned loose in tlte orchards as
allies of the fruit growers. j
j The institution is also breeding cer-
l tain species of ladybirds to destroy the j

! with orange and lemon trees. These j
ladybirds have been brought from far
Australia and California.
i The Institution is nothing less than
an ui-to-datc Insect farm, consisting
; of n large private house and an acre
! of ground. In the laboratory aro rows
upon rows of phials and Jars, tho
larvae of various Insects which are
kept at a high temperature. In tho gar
den nro cages full of all kinds of
