UNWELCOME VISITORS Are you bothered with Pear Slugs on your mountain ash, cottoneaster or cherry? They have become quite active in certain areas in the last few years and do considerable dam- age to plants. In the spring, black and yellow adult saw- flies emerge from the ground and lay their eggs in the leaves of plants. In a few days, these hatch into the typical pear slug, which often go unnoticed. They are dark green to yellowish- orange in color, about half an inch long, slimy, with the front part of the body somewhat en- larged. When they attack plants they almost skeletonize the leaves. In two to three weeks the larvae drop to the ground where they burrow in and pupate inside cocoons, re- sulting in adults making their appearance around the end of July and early August and even into September. There are ac- tually two crops of pear slugs a year and if these are not eliminated in the spring, the second generation will cause quite a lot of damage in late The pear slugs are not like the ordinary slugs that invade the gardens, coming out at night and eating the foliage, etc. of plants. They cannot stand the sun and hide under debris or plants, causing much destruction wherever they go. Pear slugs eat only the upper surface of the leaves, causing the remaining part to turn brown and finally drop off. If you spray twice a year you should practically keep this pest under control by using malathion, nicotine sulphate (Black Leaf 40) or other prep- arations recommended for this purpose, wetting the leaves thoroughly. If the proper meth- ods are not undertaken the in- festation become worse each year. The damage that these slimy pests do to trees and hedges causes a person's yard to look very unsight- ly. I have not' seen too many aphids so far, but they can be- come quite a nuisance, not only to plants, but later in the sum- mer when they get their wings, they get into a person's hair. etc. and ding to washing hung outdoors. No garden seems to be without some of these pests and thejv are over one-hundred epeties to be found in Alberta. Some live only on one particu- lar plant while others infest many different kinds. The red ones seem to prefer Golden Glow while the green ones are not so fussy. They multiply at a tremendous rate'that it would be possible for the progeny of a single aphid to weigh Jiwiiy millions of tons by the end of the year if controls were not taken to eliminate them. They overwinter in the bark of trees, in the soil and many other places. Prevention early in the much larger than the ordinary earthworm, being up to 10 inches long, purplish in color with a flattened tail, while tie garden variety are much short- er, thinner, round and reddish in color. Chlordane, used ac- cording to directions will get rid of them temporarily, but they do seem to come back again each year once you have them in the yard. This material is quite poisonous so should be used with discretion where children and pets are concern- ed. You can also use potassium permanganate at the rate of 1 ounces to 2 gallons of water, drenching the ground. Mrs. W: Does Nicotiana grow in the sun or shade when planted in the garden? Ans.: This plant not only grows in the sun, but does quite well in areas that get very lit- tle sun. MAKE MINOR ADJUSTMENTS IF NEEDED Noisy toilet easy to fix By MR. FIX Noisy toilet tanks are a nui- sance. They also are expensive. The noise often indicates a con- tinuous run of water. But the problem is not a dis- aster. Parts are easy to find, cost little and are not too much trouble to install. Often you can figure out what to do just through observation. The continuous flow of water into the bowl is the most commaa problem. Start by opening the tank on the back of the toilet Lift the top off carefully and set it down where it will not be damaged. You may find it difficult to replace a broken top and could end up buying an entire toilet Water will enter the bowl one of two ways. It will enter through the overflow tube the pipe that stands vertically in the tank and is open at the top. Or the water enters through the opening in the bottom of the tank, an opening kept closed with a rubber ball Check the level of the water. If it is below the top of the over- flow pipe the problem is with the rubber ball that ffe into the valve that releases the wa- season is one way to help get i ter into the bowl. rid of them using either mala- j Empty the tank by flushing thion, Diarintm, Isotox or other! the toilet. Then turn off the suitable sprays or dusts. If you do not have too many, washing off- with a forcible spray of water from the hose is effec- tive to some degree.

Wbea the rod is water supply so you can work in an empty tank. If you can- not turn off the water supply, keep the tank from filling by keeping the float rod up. The float rod is a metal rod with metal float baU attached to it. horizontal it closes the water intake valve. Hold up the rod with a piece of string tied to a stick. Place the stick across the top of the tank. Work the handle a few times to see if the rubber ball is seat- ing itself properly or shifting to the side. A bracket fastened to the overflow pipe guides the rod that holds the ban. This may get out of line if the screws hold- ing the bracket loosen. Adjust and tighten the screws. If the trouble isn't here, check the condition of the rubber ball You may find that it is worn or damaged. Replace with a new one. Rab tiie valve seat where the ball rests wrtfc fine emery cloth or steel wool to get rid of rough spots that may be causing the ball to wear. If the water level is above the overflow tube, then it is enter- ing the.bowl this way. Check the float rod. It may be going too high. Bend the rod slightly so that the ball is lower down than it was. Check the float to see that it isn't leaking and taking in water. This will destroy its buoyancy. Replace it with a new one if necessary. Infrequently the trouble may be with the inlet valve itself. I This generally is a matter of a worm washer. There is a movable part at the top of the intat valve. This is the valve plunger. Turn off the water and un- screw the valve plunger.
