The Orchard. RED, BROWN AND WHITE SCALES [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 18 April 1914

The Urchard. 'lED, BROWN AND WHITE SCALES January and February is the time, orchardists should remember, to get to work -on the red and the brown and the white wax scale. The brown and red scale may be effectively treat ed either bu fumigating with cyanide fumes or by spraying with telemul oion or resin and soda. For the white wax scale common washing so da has been found to be an excdllont remeay. It should be used in the proportion of lib. of soda to 4 gal. Ions of water. It is a most impor tant thing that orchardists should en deavour to secure a clean crop of cit rus fruit. Scaley fruit heanhs shii I;·,gs per case dilference in the local market, and total prohibition in the inter-State markets. The Indian white wax scale, as Mr. Walter Frog gatt has pointed out, is strictly , branch scale on citrus trees, following along the tiny branchlets right to the base of the fruit-stalk, but neve settling upon the fruit or leaves. Od;d ly enough, too, it does not appear to check' the grow...

Insect Pest in Orchards. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 18 April 1914

Insect Pests in Orchards. The "borer," scale, codlin moth, fly, and a disease known as "melanose" are among the greatest enemies the orchardist has to fight. The first. named is the most deadly to the cit rus tree. There is held to be abso lutely no cure for it, unless the beetle is destroyed as it appears on the foli age. A tree, once attacked, is doom ed. As for other diseases, thCle come and go at their own sweet will. The owner of the Hollywood orangery, in N.S.W., confesses that spraying and. fiunigating are very good in their way, but they are expensive. As a practical illustration of the non-effect of spraying big trees, it was shown that under most of the trees in the orangery shelter could be taken from a sharp shower. "What would be the good of a fine spray in that case ?.' as??ed the owner. "It would not hal! penetrate the foliage." It . had been decided to fimigate the trees at Hol lywood this season, but the extra .-s tention brought about by the drought ipset these pla...

Poultry Notes, .FEATIHERI-EATING., This baneful habit is invariably dui to over-licat of the bloud, which causes irritation oftlhe skin, and the- birds, in order to relieve -the sensation, plunch their feathers, and, finding that the quill 'contains animal juice, contract the objectionable practice, which is generally associated with the "over crowded, confined runs and often usn healthy conditions. In order to force egg-production heating, foods have been given. However, feather-plucking can be cured by cooling the blood,- and here a liberal supply of grcen food is advised and Epsom salts given in the drinlking water, whilst excellent re sults have been obtained from 'adding. .a teaspoonful of sulphate of soda and half a teaspoonful of carb. potass. to each pint. of' drinking water.
