Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 HERALD Friday. Moy 18. 1973 Watch for moth larvae u'hich feed on fibers How to store your winter clothes By MR. FIX If it's time to put on summer-' weight clothing then it also is time to store woolens. Suits. sweaters and blankets are gen- erally put away until fall tiiis: time of the year. Just casually banging them in a closet or stuffing them in a chest is a way to invite damage from; moths. If you've gotten away with it before, consider yourself lucky and don't tempt fate again. First of all. it's the larva that does the damage, not the moth. Larvae feed on wool and j other animal fibers (down, mo-' hair, feathers, The adult I moth fluttering about isn't eat- j ing anything. j First step is prevention, j Keeping everything clean will cut down or eliminate infesta- tion. Lint, dust and hair that has accumulated give the lar- vae something to feed on and hide in. Store clothing away in dirty closet and you are ask-1 ing for trouble. Vaccum storage areas reg- j ularly. Pay special attention to cracks, baseboards, moldings and other surfaces that are hard to reach. You can get rid of insects, their eggs and larvae from fabrics by cleaning them. Fre- quent brushing and sunning wherever possible will help. Dry cleaning will gel rid of them. When you brush garments and hang them to sun and air, be sure to get into seams, pockets, cuffs, etc. Cleaning and airing will get rid of what is there but dcesn't prevent reinfestation. T here are insecticide solutions which can be sprayed on to prevent infestation. Read the labels carefully and follow instruc- tions. Sprays used generally Some do's and don'Is Successful transplanting By DOC' HARTNOLL Divide perennial phlox. Shas- ta daisies, gailardias as soon as you can work in the flower bed without sinking up to your knees in mud. When setting out transplants of any .kind, includ- ing perennials, annuals and vegetables use a soluable plant food like Instant Vigoro to re- move the shock of transplant- ing. Your plants will get a much faster start and be stronger- There are, however, certain plants that do not like to be transplanted. These would in- clude the annual poppies, sal- piglossis, mignonentte annual phlox. If necessary to trans- plant them the seedlings should be grown in small pots so they ran be moved where desired without disturbing their roots. SHRUBS. EVERGREENS AND TREES Here again, there are times when a plant, has been planted at the wrong place and trans- planting is a must, the proper time to move any of the decidu- ous trees and shrubs is before they come into leaf, it isn't a j difficult thing to move a plant; from one area to another and, to it successfully. Dig around! the shrub, and keep as much I soil as possible around the root system, it's a good idea to water around fche shrub before figging, this will tend to hold the soil around the roots. Be- fore digging the plant it's best to prepare the new location, and make the new hole larger so that the roots can spread out. I like to work in some Pink j Vigoro at this time, to remove i the shock. Then once the hole I is dug in the new location. I'll j dig the shrub I'm going toi move, if it's on my property, j I'll get a burlap bag, place the j dug shrub on it and pull across I the area to where the new loca-1 tion has been selected, then- gently place it in the hole and put the top soil around the root j system. Water well. You'll have better results if you'll carry out i this chore on an overcast day. I If it's sunny, then you'd be j most wise to protect the shrub j from the strong rays of the sun j that would tend to dry out the j newly transplanted shrub. Ball-1 ed and burlapped trees and! shrubs, purchased from your j local nurseryman will trans- j plant more successfully as the j roots are not susceptible to dry-1 ing out. When set in the place> where you want it to grow per- J manently. make sure to feed it. i DON'TS i Don't fry move oriental i poppies in the spring, wait until! fall when they go dormant. Pe- j onies are transplanted in the fall because the flower buds j have already formed for tins I year's production. Evergreens require plenty of water after transplanting or moving, and for that reason fall is a much better time, unless they are purchased 'balled and burlap- ped' from your local nursery- man., when they can be plant- ed at any time. you have any questions on lawn or garden care, write to me at Garden Information Cen- tre. 165 University Avenue.

Apply by first hanging the clothing and blankets oil a line and then spraying lightly and evenly. Do not soak the fabric. Too much spray will leave a j white deposit after it dries. Never treat infants' apparel or blankets unless they arc to be stored. Before using again. j launder or dry clean. After treating woolen articles. allow them to dry before stor- i i You can protect woolen arti- cles to be stored by using moth crystals, flakes or balls. You must use a sufficient amount and Us storage must be air- tight. As the chemical evaporates it gives off a vapor which lolls i moths. It is not the smeli that repels them and the fact that you can smell the chemical is j no indication there is enough i of it. i In trunks or closets the rec- ommended amount is one pound for each 100 cubic feet of i space. Since the vapor is heav- ier than air, place the chemi- cal high a quantity on a shelf, a bag or perforated con- tainer hung from a clothes rod. Such storage areas should be sealed shut. Woolen articles can also be protested by first making sure they are not infested and then wrapping them and seal- ing them tightly.
