Aphids Injurious to Orchard Fruits, Currant, Gooseberry and Grape

Description: "The present bulletin treats of the aphids injurious to fruit and foliage of apple, quince, pear, plum, cherry, peach, currant, gooseberry, and grape. Thirty-two species of aphids in all are discussed. The more important forms affecting a given fruit are considered first, and then follows a brief account of species known to infest the plant locally or occasionally, and which growers should be able to distinguish from the more destructive species. In their life history, aphids are peculiar in many respects, and each species occurs in several different forms; for this reason a short account of aphids in general is given for the information of readers not familiar with these facts. Remedial measures are described at the close of the bulletin, since similar treatments are applicable, with some variations, for the control of all the species considered." -- p. 3

Description: "Asparagus growers in large sections of the United States now have to protect their crop against the attacks of the adults and young of two species of beetles introduced originally from Europe.

Of remedial measures the best for general use is shown to be spraying with arsenate of lead directions for the preparation and application of which are given on pages 10-11." -- p. 2
