Gibson and Siricklami, offic- ers of the division of entomology, and it was .found that the species mainly responsible for the destruction to the growing urops was one which had hitherto been unknown as an economic pest, pc-rosagrotjs or- Jiogoma. Studies of the li'fc-histo'ry of the insect began in the division at Ottawa in 19J2, were continued in the field in 1013, in the Lethhridgc lislrici, and the known remedies so successful in eastern Canada were ex- pcrimentod with. From one season's study in the it would be seen that the habit of this cutworm is to feed just be- low the surCace. IE this underground feeding habit should prove to he a constant one, it will, of course, ren- der the problem of control more dif- ficult. In the control measures adopt- ed, infested fields were divided into various steed plots, none'smaller than one-tenth of an acre each'. These wsre ticatcd with various strengths of Paris green, salt and sugar mixed wi'th bran and broadcasted hy hand over the fields. Lead and London purple were also used as poisons, but the I'aris green gave tho best results. "In some places the application of poisunsd bran were disappointing hut in others the outbreak of cutworm was stopped within 21 hours after the bran was applied. "Pending further investigations and a continuation of the stubble burning and other experiments in the licM, no definite statement can be made as to control measures. In the laboratory, diphthnrous parasites have been rear- ed from cut-worms collected .in the field. These species of cut-worms arc generally controlled by their para- sitic enemies, hut it is important, to discover, if possible, means of check- Ing incipient jrp HE NEW MARKET is gaining new customers daily Quality, Service and Fair Prices the Magnet i You are guaranteed perfect satisfaction, for the choicest of every tiling is hero.
