Thete "millers" wi'll be laying, with- in the next three or four weeks, the eggs from which next year's worms will hatch. Each female moth can lay up to 1100 eggs, every one of. which, under favorable conditions, will hatch out into a worm, and menace next year's We have found that the chief places selected by the moths for egg laying are summer fallow fields upon which weeds are present, and it we are to have an outbreak next year it Is mor- ally certain that such fields w 111 be the centres of infestation. The best advice we give, there- far, is: "Keep your summer fallows clean _ absolutely clean during the next four or five weeks, and, above all, keep them clear of Everyone realizes that good farm- ,.ig demands this attention to sum- mer fallow, and everyone realizes also the danger oi letting- stlnkweed In- crease on their farms, but few realize flbw directly lack of care in keeping summer fallow, clean affects the ab- undance of cutworms during the fol- lowing year. It must be noted that we -flaid "absolutely for this is an important point. Two or three weeds to the rod are sufficient to at- tract moths for egg-laying. The field must have absolutely no sign of green food lor the young worm to feed upon, when the "millers" are selecting good spots to deposit their eggs. S.ummer fallow is their favor- ite choice, and a total lack of food alone keeos them from laying their eggs on it. Many farmers, and others, are in- cline'd .to think that this worm is of no danger to crops, because this year natic conditions were so tricts, little re-seeding was necessary. Such reasoning is only natural, be- cause it so happens that we have nev- er before had an outbreak of this worm in our province, and have there- fore not seen what it. can, and does, do when seasons arc favorable, and not to us.
