Centipede Found in Various
Sections; no Control
Method Known
The small Insect which has both
ered gardeners in this vicinity
this spring is the- Sytnphnid, it
has ; become known through In
quiry made by Mrs. O. B. Lyday
to the department of entomology,
Oregon State college. The insect
is one' of the worst garden prob
lems at this time. It eats the hair
like roots of seeds, such as beans,
peas' and cabbage
Mrs. Lyday sent a sample of
the pest to Corrallls, and reply
of A. O. Bouquet of the yegetable
crops section, O. S. C, says in
"While I have officially refer
red your letter and bottle of in
sects to the department of en
tomology in charge of insect con
trol neyertheless I wanted to
write to you at this time regard
ing this; insect inasmuch as un
fortunately I am also too well ac
quainted with it. It is called the
Symphllif, sometimes called the
garden centipede. "While it has
been prevalent In the state for a
number of years. It has eridently
not been generally distributed
until more recently.
"In our vegetable crops acre

from Corrallls, we ar now be
ginning to experience consider
able trouble from these insects
Last year was one of the worst
attacks especially on cabbage and
cauliflower. I have found them in
many gardens -in Corvallis. So far
no known method of control Is
available. Due to their small size
and depth of soil ;to which they
may go, comparatively shallow
soil treatments seem to have been
of little benefit. I find these in
sects pretty well scattered now,
for example, I was recently up on
the hill land above Crawfordsville
and found a bad attack on toma
toes In a greenhouse there. On
small acreages of land possibly
some sterilization may be done
but in an out-door garden. It
would probably be impossible.
"Frankly I want to tell you
that I consider this insect one of
the worst garden problems we
have at the present time due to
Its size, reproduction and its liv
ing at various depths of the soil.
Various potent materials have
been used by the department of
entomology but without very
much success so far. Even though
one should treat the seed, say
with Semesan, it would apparent
ly nave no errect In protecting
the young plant afterward. The
fine feeding roots of the plants
seem to be the main food of the
"Most of our garden insects are
controlled but it is generally
agreed both here and in Califor
nia that no successful control of
the Symphyilid is yet practiced.
In California, flooding the land
for a certain number of days seem
to be beneficial but of course this
is impossible in most instances.
