Insect Pests. VARIOUS DISEASES. THE REMEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 5 July 1888
Insect Pests. VAIlIOUS DISEASES. THE REMEDIES. W. G. Klee, State Inspector of Fruit Pests for California, has just issued a bulletin on spring and summer re medies. It contains the following inforlmation : For codlin moth the most successful remedy last season proved to be the arsenical mixtures. Of the three, Paris green, London purple, white arsenic, wherever used in the coast counties, where more or less damp nights prevail, the two latter did some damage to the foliage, and for this reason and that its effect is most last ing, the Paris green seenms to be prefer able. Of five samples analysed last year by the University of California, four had above 54 per cent. arsenic, one going 38 per cent. In accordance with this we wonld recommend early ripen ing apples and pears to be sprayed once with 11h of Paris green to 180gals of water when just out of bloom. For fall and winter apples it may lie advisable to spray 10 lays later with an application of 11b to 200gals, while the blossom...
THE APIARY. SOME FACTS ABOUT BEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 5 July 1888
THE APIARY. SOIME FACTS ABOUT BEES. The amount of ignorance there is con cerning bees is really astonishing. The agricultural editor of a very prominent newspaper recently informed an inquir ing subscriber that as bees " took slome thing" from huckwhcat they evidently injured the crop. A few years ago Pro fessor Wiley, in an article in the Papllo-ar &irnrce MJfMothly, stated that "combs were made of parafinc, tilled with scented glucose and scaled with a hot iron." This was something sensational and was copied and recopied all over the land. The bee papers made so muchl fuss atnout it that Professor Wiley finally admitted that there was no truth in the story; that it was given as a "scientific pleasantry." Tile Palular S&irence IMonthly made no correction, neither did the papers that copied it. Tihe story is before the public uncontradictcl, except by the tee papers, and is believed by thousands. It has been proved time and again that bees are needed in transferring ...
