The last one was very destructive and was at its height during the period from 1914 to 1916.... A large proportion of such losses is preventable, although no remedy is known which will destroy the pest or save the crop once it has become thoroughly infested. Control and preventive measures are described on page 13 and summarized on page 16." -- p. 2
