OUR FRUIT PK8TS.
Ab - Interesting; Letter on the Subject
Prom a Former Sw Zealander.
Poetlanb, Or., April 30, 1891.
Mr. J. A. Varney, Horticultural Inspec
" tor for Oregon.
Dbas Sib : Reading part of your re
port in the Evening Telegram of April 29,
I was much struck with its usefulness
and wish to make a few remarks. .
' About four years ago I was residing at
Nelson, a town in New Zealand, once
famous all over the colony for its fine
fruit orchards etc., but now -or I mean
then, sad to relate, all its former pride
in that respect has departed. :The scale,
six various kinds, had destroyed every
thing and not . satisfied with ' stopping
there, began on the hedgefj of English
hawthorn, and even attacking the. forest
trees, taking the life out of the trees.
Well the government secured the ser
vices of a scientist there ; have forgot his
name, who came down and delivered
lectures at Nelson, on the scale, etc., but
he told them it was like fastening the
stable door when the horse had . gone.
He gave remedies for the different scale
paracites, but he said it was too late for
two tin els, they were in the forests
already, advised most of them to burn
their trees np and replant, and attend to
them. - The codlin moth they had bad,
but that was their easiest difficulty,
work of various kinds he said would re
duce that to a minimum, mentioned
many ways to reduce them, some were
bonfires at night," digging around the
trees, fowls in orchard, the introduction
j and preserving of insect devouring
I birds, sprays, washes and many other
j Having a few young trees in the Wil
' lamette valley how sad it would be for
these pests to destoy everything. So
Mr. Inspector go for them that have the
scale, red-hot. Show them no mercy.
Most of them are ignorant, but know
ingly, are far worse than highway rob
bers. Excuse me saying all - thie, , but
there is a bright future for Oregon,
everything is in our favor if all put their
shoulders to the wheel.
