THE APpIe ORCHARD.
FIRST PAPER OF A SERIES TO BE
On How to Grow.iood Fruit Scale Hug
and Other Nation. InBct Cnn He
Measurably Eradicated Kcience MiiKt
In pioneer times ou this Coast if a
jnan planted an apiile tree and it grew,
and if he cultivated, pruned and watered
it where water was needed it fruited
abundantly and jthe tree was healthy
and perfect. There were no worms in
the fruit, no black scabs and blotches
to mar its beauty, the foliage had no
rusts and mildews destroying the func
tions of the leaves, no borers in the tree
trunks inviting decay, no scale bugs or
wool' aphis sucking out the tree's life.
All was perfect if the planter did his
part. The same was true of the pear.
How is it now V All who know any
thing of the subjeut know that today it
is hard to find a healthy, vigorous tree
or a perfect, soend apple. All their in
sect enemies and rlidases have been im
ported, leaving, for the most part, all
the enemies of the noxious insects be
hind. , There is light ahead, and relief,
in part, by nature' i own slow way. But
we cannot afford to wait for that. We
live tor today and want our fruit for to
day. Here is an eiample of how nature
helps us out of such troubles.
Among the first pests to give a check
to the vigor of the apple tree here was
the oyster shell bark louse (I shall use no
technical names) or scale bug us we now
call them. It ' jis imported to this
Coast from Etirqpe via the Eastern
states. Reaching ere, the climate suit
ed it and it bred , . J-ipread with great
rapiu..Ti''inu2ie0',j I Mastered the appU
tree.- ,,-, t '' fU iaiftropicnnUf1
scale, greasy st Jig the vigor of the
tree. There was 'nothing whatever to
interfere with it. It had nothing to do
but eat, breed and sprRd. A subsequent
importation of trees was infested by an
exceedingly smajl and pretty parasitic
fly, which graJually destroyed nearly
every one of the first variety. And
now in the older section, where this
oyster shell bark louse was first intro
duced, it is difficult to find a living spec
imen. Yet their old scales can be seen
by the million, each with a tiny hole in
its back where our little friend, the fly,
had made its exit to go on with the good
work. The same thing wonld happen to
nearly every one of our fruit and tree
pests if we have patience and can afford
to wait. But can we? Most certainly
not, if we can do better, and we can.
The destructive San Tose scale is an
other example. It was introduced
several years ago. It announced itself;
"Neither trees nor fruit will you have
if you let ine have my way, " The Ban
Jose scale dou't he, whatever its other
faults may be. In spieading, and ruin
ing orchards it was a terror. The fruit
growers of the state were all up in arms
against it. Hundreds of sprays and
washes were invented, concocted and
used against it but the scale marched
serenely on. Some checked it somewhat,
making it possible to grow some fruit,
But not one of the many things used
could eradicate it. It is still a serious
question. Among economic entomolO'
gists, many believe it would have disap-
peared much sooner if it had been left
entirely alone. It is now disappearing
very fast, being exterminated by a little
gnat. It is being destroyed most rapidly
in old settled places, where no spraying
has been done and where only two or
three years ago they covered everything.
So they would all go could we find and
scatter among them their most effective
natural enemies to be found among
other insects. But can we find and in
There is another point which must be
-kept in mind. Any cause that weakens
vigor or vitality in a life renders that
life more susceptible to chronic diseases,
This is especially so in vegetable life.
Scale bugs, leaf lice, root lice and leaf
feeding insects all weaken the tree they
prey upon. Therefore, since our fruit
trees have been preyed upon by lice there
are more leaf, fruit, bark and root dis
eases now than in pioneer days. There
is absolute proof that a thoroughly
sound, heahiiy, vigorous tree is quite re
sistant to low forms of injurious insects
and diseases while one low in vitality
is the one first attacked. The same is
true of the poorly fed calf or colt. They
are found lousy in the spring and it is
the weak chicken which is first attacked
with lice and the first to die with roup
or cholera. The man of low vitality
dies first in epidemics and succumbs
more quickly to malignant diseases.
Then if we keep up the vigor of fruit
trees by freeing them from the insects
that are sapping their vitality away, we
render them less liable to disease. If we
can prevent the diseases we will leave
them with vitality to withstand the
drains the insects make on them. We
can do both nearly nerfectly. How, will
be considered in another issue of this
paper. D. Wiek.
The Off Year In Fruit Tree.
Why do not fruit trees give a full crop
each year? is often asked. This is a
more important question in the Kasteru
states than on this Coast. Here fruit
trees git quite regular crops if well
cared for. and if given the best riossibU
care the yearly crops would be quite
regular. The only reason why fruit
trees generally bear a heavy crop one
year and scarcely any the next, is be
cause the trees were thrown into that
habit while young, by allowing thorn to
mature their first full crop without prop
er pruning the preceding winter, and
thinning the fruit properly after it had
set. If this is done promptly and hero
ically, and the tree given proper culti
vation, it will have a surplus of nutri
tion above what is necessary to mature
the fruit, to form flower buds for a crop
the succeeding year. Though as a rule
wild trees left to nature give great crops
only periodically. But they do not have
artificial care as above.
