The Hessian Fly and How to Prevent Losses from It

Description: Revised editions. "The Hessian fly undoubtedly is the most injurious insect enemy of wheat in the United States. During the last 37 years at least seven general outbreaks of this pest have occurred in the States east of the Mississippi River.

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

Hows Insects Affect the Rice Crop

Description: Revised edition. "The slender, milk-white grub or 'maggot' of the rice water-weevil lives on the roots of rice, and whether it feeds little or much upon them, kills practically all the roots that it attacks. This pruning of the roots weakens the rice plant and often kills it. Another enemy of this staple crop of the South is the stink bug, which sucks the juices from the soft grains of rice. The fall army worm, when it becomes abundant, works great havoc in its attack upon young rice. Other insects also, such as the rice stalk-borer, infest the rice field, and the rice planter must constantly guard his crop against them. This bulletin tells when to plant, and when to flood and drain the fields in order to reduce the numbers of these pests, and recommends other measures that will prevent attack by the many minor species of insects which normally breed in and near rice fields." -- p. ii
