There are (wo borer that work in fruit

a flat head and the other a round head.
They both come from egg laid by lx-e-tle.
The beetle of the round-headed
borer in alnjut three-fourth of an inch
long, and ha two broad, creamv-white
tripe running the whole lengtli of it
Ixxlv. The beetle of the Hal-headed
borer ia of a shining greenish-black color,
with it under lide of a shining coppery
color. Thi borer attack the whole
trunk and often the larger branclien,
while the former conline ita attack to
the base of the trunk alinoxt entirely.
The beetle lay their egg in the South
in May and at the North in June and
July. The lnelle of the round-headed
borer generally lays it egg at dunk, ami
ia bidden during the day. The Ixretleof
the flat-headed Lorer ia' a lively fellow.
He like the hot sunshine, and mm
very rapidly up and down the bark in
bright day, but inntantly take wing if
an attempt ia made to capture him.
Nothing can be done to kill tlie egg, but
a good preventive i to coat the trees
with oit (oap, planter of Darin and paria
green during the time the beetle are
abundant. The soap ia dintanteful to
the beetle; the planter of pari makes
it atick, and the paria green will ponton
any young that may hatch from the egg.
The 'only way to kill the inwx-t after
