APIIIDS subject of garden pests is a vast one, and a very important one. As much as try to get rid of them one year, they are back with us again the next year. Aphids have sur- vived for millions of years and probably will For many more. A paragraph from the Leth- bridge weekly letter stated: "It is of interest that an aphid, em- bedded in clear amber, was found in the tailings of an open- pit coal mine near Medicine Hat. The bentonites that over- laid the amber-bearing coal have been radiometricaUy dat- ed as being about 72 million years old. Fossils of five other .species of aphids have been found in England and Den- mark. Those from Denmark were in amber calculated to be 35-50 million years old." We should try to keep aphids under control because if we didn't we wouldn't be able to live here. They seem to be the number ONE pest in this area and elsewhere. In fact, re- search has proven they are the world's most serious pest. They are plant lice, small and some- what pear-shaped and can be red, green, black, yellow or brora. There are over known species in the world wilh 100 to be found around tliis area. They have beak-like mouths which Ilicy insert into a leaf, bud. stem or root of a plant and suck oul the juices. They spread disease from one plan! lo nnolher. Until late sum- ilislory lesson ('hard or Swiss chnrd grows flild in the Mediterranean area and was known lo gardeners as long as Ihc -Ith century B.C. li. is a licet wilh a small, inedible rool, hut highly developed leaves. It is thought that our licet was developed from chard. There's a difference M'ilh an electric table saw, Ihe wood is pushed into Ihe re- volving blade. With a radial arm saw, the blade is pulled Into the wood. mer, they are wingless. Did you know that these insects produce at such a tremendous rate (under favorable condi- tions) that it would be possible for the progeny of a single aphid to weigh many millions of tons by the end of a year, but fortunately, with controls, this will not happen. Natural pred- ators such as birds, Lady Bugs, etc. do a tremendous job in helping lo eliminate many of them. There are other factors too which tend to cut down on their population. In cool, rainy weather, reproduction is slow, and it also is in hot weather. If at all possible, I don't like using insecticides, but some- times it gets to the point where chemical controls become nec- essary. I wash off my trees, shrubs and flowers, etc. almost daily with water from the hose, which does help to control aphids and other pests, but this is often not 100 per cent suc- cessful. If you notice the leaves of plants distorted and curled, and turning red or yellow, check the underside of the leaves and you will discover aphids. On trees aphids can cause leaves to be twisted or curled or galls to be formed When the aphids are inside the leaves they are almost impos- sible to control by ordinary methods. This is where your syslcmics are useful. You can use Cygon paint- ing a six inch deep hand around the tree, just below the lowest branch. For large Irees. you lake live times the diameter of the trunk, that is. for a four inch diameter trunk, you would paint 5 times 4 or a twenty inch band completely around it. fAI- ways be sure to read the direc- tions on the Another chemical w h i c h gives good control is maln- Ihion which should bo sprayed on the underside ol the leaves to he more effeclive. Nicolime sulphate (Black 40) may also be used. Hencat as neces- sary. On non-edible crops you can also use Protexall Granu- lar Systemic Insecticide, an- other one of the systemics, which is just sprinkled around plants, cultivated lightly in and then watered. This gives very good control for up to four weeks. It should be mentioned that malathion is not as effec- tive when the temperature is below 60 degrees F. Mrs. E. What is a good fertilizer to use on house plants? I have both flowering and foliage type. Ans. For most house plants you can use 20-20-29, but for tropicals or foliage they require a little more nitrogen so you could use 18-12-6 NOTE: AH questions should be sent with self addrcssed- stampcd, envelope to Mrs. I.
