WASMlXltTON, U. C, July 3lk
Two unbidden ImmlRrnntB cmnd Into
the United States soino years age: to.
day, they are tho objects ot tho com
bined attack ot the federal ami sev
eral state governments, which have
turned to Europe and Asia for hel:
in their fight. Not only have tho
two unwelcome visitors devastated
vast vegetable tracts in this country,
but ouo of them has originated and
Introduced n new humnn ailment that
Is doing great damage to the busi
ness if summer resorts. The two ini
migrants arc the gypsy-moth and tho
brown-tall moth. Tho warfare being
waged against them Is decrlbcd In a
communication to the National Geo
graphic society, at Washington, D. C
by Dr. T O. Howard.
yp"y Moth Imported
Tho gypsy moth according to the
writer, was brought to this country
for experimental purposes by n
French professor ot astronomy in a
Now England university. Its Impor
tation came to our shores In Uio nor
mal couno of commerce. From
1S?2 until 1U00, both species ewro
routined to Massachusetts, where a
bitter tight was waged against them
by tho state. From 1900 to 1905,
however, th v were unmolested, ex
cept by lndlvl.Iu.nl property holders
Since 1903, Massachusetts has been
Joined In her fight by New Hamp
shire, Maine, Rhode Island and Con
necticut, into which states tho pests
migrated. And now tho United
States government has stopped In to
prevent the further spread over the
face of the country.
Since the young of tho moth pre
fer the leaves of certain trees for
food, the states are removing these
trees from the forests subject to the
moth attack. In some eases, the
problem may mean ultimate refor
estation. The female gypsy-moth doi-3
not fly, but the species was spread
whon the insect, while In the cater
pillar stage, crawled on trolley carj,
automobiles and other vehicles, and
upon the cloths of pedestrians. Tills
condition was remedies by driving tho
pests from the highways for a dis
tance ot SO to 100 feet.
Wire Sereeas Krvrtril
Knornious wire screens. coatoJ
with a sticky substance to entauele
them, erected to tho windward of In
fected woods, demonstrated tho fact
that many youug caterpillars, sus
pended by their silken tread, were
carried- by the wind to a distance ot
six miles or more, and tho attacking
forecs are now concentrating their ef
fort along tho border ot spread. Aa
an added precaution to a spread of
the petftsj all products shipped from
the Infested region aro rigidly In
spected for tho larvae of the Inscc.
Tho femalo brown-tall moth Is a
strong flyer, but fortunately she Is
not ro hard to control. Early spring
and' fall spraying and tho cutting off
and burning of the characteristic
winter nesU have Drought wonderful
IlrnwM Tnil IUli
The principle money loss caused
by the latter pest occurs at the sum
mer refort, wlicro the provnlonco of
what has conic to bo known as tho
"brown-tall rash" keeps people away.
Thu hairs of tho brown-tall caterpil
lar aro finely barbed and brittle, and
where they come In contact with the
human skin these hairs outer the skin
pore, break off, and cauic n severo
Irritation. It Is not alwnys neces
sary for tho caterpillar to come in
contact with the skin for at certain
times of tho year the hairs aro float
ing In tho air.
Tho moro recent recruits lu tho
war against the moths are uumoroui
spece of true parasites, which Imvo
been imported from Europe and Asia.
Chief among them is the Calosomn
bVotlc, wosc specialty la thu devour
ing of leaf-catlng caterpillars. Al
though slow to get a start, these
bottles aro now thriving in this con a
try and uie expected to exterminate
mlllloiik of the maths during tho
present summer. Another recruit la
the Japuneso egg parasite, the Schcd
ius kuvunue, which undergoes Its en
tire development in a single gypsy
moth egg, .
