TSIE CODLIN illOTIl. LIFE HISTORY. (By C. F. Cole, District Orchard Supervisor.) To successfully combat a disease it is necessary to have, a knowledge of its | life history. Ignorance upon the life | history of this common pest is much in | .evidence amongst growers of theappie and pear in many districts, particularly those in a small way and private growers. There are three stages of existence known to entomologists and other authorities who have studied the life history of this pest. Firstly, the larvae or grub stage ; secondly, the papae or chrysalis ; and, thirdly, the imago or perfect insect. Starting with the perfect insect (moth) that emerges from the chrysalis in the spring, and known as the first brood. The female moth, generally speaking, is a nocturnal, i.e., a night liver, depositing her eggs upon the immature fruit, the egg being about the size of a pin's head, of a pale creamy color when first deposited, and turning much darker bulore hatching. Immediately upon hatchin...
