LITTLE POTATO BEETLE PEST
Insecticide Recommended That Will
Stand Considerable Wet Weather
and Do Good Work.
( BY S. ATlTmm JOHNSON , COLORA
DO AGRICULTURAL , COLLEGE )
The potato beetle la such a com
mon pest that a description scarcely
seems necessary , but since other In-
hocts are often mistaken for it , it maybe
bo well to give a brief account of It.
The adult beetle In ova ] In form , about
three eights of an Inch In length , and
Jiint a little narrower than long. The
ground color is yellow. The upper
wings are marked by ton black lines
The adults live over winter In the
ground to the depth of six to ten
inches or moro.
In the spring the beetles appear
about the time that the potatoes
break from the ground , and In a few
days the egg laying begins. The eggs
are bright yellow in color and are
laid In patches on the under sides of
the leaves. They are very easily dls-
coveted by simply turning over the
vines with the hands so that the under
sides of the leaves are exposed. Ev
ery potato grower should make a sys
tematic examination of the vines by
passing through his fields and turning
over the loaves of two or thteo hills
in each row.
The eggs hatch In from four to
eight days , according to the tempera
ture. The larvae are dark red grubs
with black heads. For the first daj
or two they often eat the surface of
( ho leaf upon which they were
hatched. Then they migrate to the
top of the plant and food upon the
young tender leaves which are jttsi
The Ideal moment for the first
spray Is just when the eggs are beginning
ginning to hatch. Fortunately , wo
now have an Insecticide which wll
stand considerable wet weather am
still leave enough clinging to the
leaves to do very effective work. This
Is arsenate of lead.
This polfaon usually comes In the
form of a white paste , though eomo
manufacturers make n powdera
product. The arsenical Is applied to
the vines In water at the rate of six
or eight pounds of the poison to t
Inndrcd gallons of water , or abou
three or four pounds to the barrel
The best way to mix the poison 1
to weigh out the required amount In a
pall , pour In some water , and mix
thoroughly with a stick. Pour of : the
top of the mixture Into the barrel o
water through a screened funnel. Adt
more water to the remainder In th
pall , mix. and proceed us before untl
all the substance has boon dissolved

peclally In largo fields , ' by moau
