California Oak Worm

Description: "The live oak and the valley oak, which are characteristic of the landscape of central California, often are stripped of their leaves by a dark-striped worm which is the young stage of a light-brown moth.

This bulletin describes and illustrates the worm and its work, tells about its habits and natural enemies, and explains the methods of control." -- p. 2

Powder-Post Damage by Lyctus Beetles to Seasoned Hardwood

Description: "The sapwood of seasoned hardwood material of all kinds, both finished and unfinished, especially of hickory, ash, and oak, is often ruined by yellowish-white grubs from one-eighth to one-fifth inch in length which burrow through the solid wood in all directions and convert it into powder. These grubs are the young, or larvae, of small, slender, somewhat flattened, reddish-brown to nearly black beetles, known as powder-post beetles.... The object of this bulletin is to describe the methods which have been found effective in preventing these losses and to induce a more general adoption of them throughout the United States as well as to show the character and extent of the damage." -- title page

The House Fly

Description: "The presence of flies is an indication of uncleanliness, insanitary conditions, and improper disposal of substances in which they breed. They are not only annoying; they are actually dangerous to health, because they may carry disease germs to exposed foods. It is therefore important to know where and how they breed, and to apply such knowledge in combating them. This bulletin gives information on this subject. Besides giving directions for ridding the house of flies by the use of screens, fly papers, poisons, and flytraps, it lays especial emphasis on the explanation of methods of eliminating breeding places and preventing the breeding of flies." -- p. 2

The Common Mealybugs and Its Control in California

Description: "No one method for the control of the common mealybug can be recommended under all conditions. The remedy or remedies to be used will depend upon whether the trees are in house lots or orchards, whether few or many, and the infestation light or severe. In the case of severe infestation it will depend also upon the kind of fruit. This insect infests oranges of all varieties, grapefruit, lemons, and all other kinds of citrus fruit grown in California, causing deformity, weakening and dropping of much immature fruit, and the discoloration and weakening of the rind of the fruit maturing. This bulletin discusses the three remedies which have been widely used; namely, fumigation, spraying, and the artificial spread of insect enemies, points out the sphere of usefulness of each method, and shows, on pages 14-15, how they may be combined so as to secure complete control." -- p. 2

Control of the Green Clover Worm in Alfalfa Fields

Description: "Severe infestation of alfalfa by the green clover worm has been reported recently from the central part of the United States. Caterpillars, hatching out from eggs laid by small brown and black moths, in some cases have stripped the foliage from alfalfa plants to such an extent that infested fields have been made to appear ragged. The green clover worm is generally distributed over the eastern half of the country. Timely cutting of the crop so as to remove their food supply when the caterpillars are most abundant, with clean culture, is the best control measure. It may be supplemented by the use of the hopper-dozer when outbreaks are particularly bad." -- p. 2

The Rough-Headed Corn Stalk-Beetle in the Southern States and Its Control

Description: "Within recent years an increasing number of reports of serious damage to the corn crop by a robust black beetle have been received from most of the Southern States. A noteworthy outbreak occurred during the early summer of 1914 in the tidewater section of Virginia. As very little was known regarding the natural history of this pest, this bulletin has been designed to supply this information. By following the control measures recommended herein it is hoped that the ravages of this pest may be largely overcome in the future." -- p. 3
