At a recent meeting of the Pajaro
Valley OirhardiKtV Asxtifiatitm Knto
moloKint W. W. Volk pave a review of
his coriliu moth invest iaHoUM. The
followiiiK in a iyuopsiKot' w hat ho said
ou the Miibjuct, as reported by tlie
WatHonville Pujaroniuu :
1 iirst took up the work of the rod
lin moth invei-tifratinn iu the middle
of the August last year. At that time
the injurious effects of too heavy a
use of parit) green had beuu to lie
manifest in certain orchards. ihe
seriousness of this condition was
quickly realized by those in charge of
the investlaRtioii.aiid Professor Wood
worth directed that a special study be
made of the problem at once. Work
wan betfuu early in September and a
laiKe number of small experiments
were made and nearly nil of the known
arsenicals were specially tested with
regard to their elfect upon the foli
ao. Counter experiments were also
run to determine their value as in
secticides. These experiments result
ed in very quickly show inn that under
the climatic conditions prevailing in
aud around Watsonville of the so
called insoluble arsenic i (impounds
were liable to break down and liberate
tho arsenic in a soluble form, iu w hich
case it can readily gain access to the
leaf and bring about the poisoiiini;
and killing ol the tissue, known as
The substances experimented with
were, in the main, the iveuzic formula,
paris green, arsenate of lend home
made and commercial varieties. All
of these compounds proved injurious
except the arsenate of lead audi lis
parine, a commercial lorm of lead
arsenate, which proved the best, of all,
not injuring the delicate foliage of
beans when applied in the greatest
possible concentration.
'Ihe addition of lime was also made
a point of fctudy. It. was found that
this retarded the injurious eli'ects of
paris green v. lieu a. hied in moderate
amounts, but the small experiments
did uot indicate that the exces.-he
use of lime brought about any marked
injury prevention, 'lht-se results do
not agree with cxariiy the practical
spraying done in On t on and to some
extent iu tho valley.
It has long been known that the ad
dition of lime tended to prevent in
jury from Paris green, and in theory
it v. a.s supposed to act chemically on
the uncoinbiued o tree arsenic and
thereby fo-t.i an Lr.-olchlo arseuitn of
limo. Put ou closer study it, was seen
that the white arsenic, or soluble ar
senous oxide, which was supposed to
be tho cause of all the injury, could
not bo readily combined w ith the lime
in this manlier. It was also dis
covered that the paris green itself
would break down some days, weeks
or months after the application, ac
cording to t he weather conditions and
tho stability of the product. Then
the chemical combination of the lime
with iree arsenic can hardly account
for its action in preserving the paris
green particle. It seemed then that
another cause must be sought for.
Kery one has observed that a bucket
of lime water will form a skin over
the surface alter stand ing u few hours.
This skin is bicarbonate and is
formed by the action of the carbonic
acid gas in the air ou the lime solu
tion. The carbonate of lime is nearly
insclubie mid so a skin of it quickly
for .ns at, the surface of the water.
j his same skin is formed anywhere
a aiticie of limo solution is expoicd.
A g.ass plate wet with lime witter w ill.
as soon us the water has ewiporated,
be coverct tenacious skin oi
lime carhor.aio. The same thing hap
pens with u particle of paris gret-n
wet with lime water. This skin is
nearly insoluble in water and is also
quite resistant to weather decomposi
tion and hence acts as a protection to
the particle. Put so far nothing has
been found which w ill improve tin;
weather resistance of paris green as to
make it safe in tho Pajnro valley.
It is safe for the reasons above stated
that we were forced to give up pans
green and substitute lead arsenate
which, iu tho earlier experiment .,,
was found to be tho safest of ail ar
senicals tested.
The small experiments of last sea
sou were suplemented this year by
some on a larger scale, a short ac
count of which will uot lie out of
place here.
Such experimental work ns was car
ried on iu the lield was conducted at
the Rodgers place on Lake a emit!.
C. 11. ilodgers kindly gave us I ho lib
erty of the premises and stood such
expenses hist were conducted wiih the
work in tho Held.
Tho Held work consisted of three
principal spraying experiments, sup
plemented by a number of smaller
ones. In tho principal ej crim"nts
tho spraying was done with a power
outtit. One set tif trees was sprayed
with the oil ami paris green mixture,
the formula lieiug changed somewhat
from time to time. The Hist spray
ing consisted ot i.l ounces of pans
green, 3 pints of lim-oed oil and
pounds of lime in 2ui gallons of water.
the application was made tin the -!-t
of June. At tho time of the applica
tion tho foliage was in good condi
tion. Ono month later, oratthetime
of the socond application, there was
a slight, through noticeable, injury
to the foliage.
In the second application ):i ounces
of paris green were used, w it It II
quarts of oil ami M poutuln of lime.
Only half the trees were sprayed the
second time, the injury which was
just apparent at tho time of tho sec
ond spraying developed slightly more,
aud then was apparently checked.
so that at the time of the third appli
cation, August JI, it seemed to lie loss
seriously than formerly.
The formula usetl in the
third spray
ing was coiiri.-tel of paris green lu
I uuu.v-D, it-' viv. .... i., .ii nun iiuiir i
,.,.r.,..u !i.....,l I t ...... l : '
8 pounds. Shortly after litis spraying ;
the trees lost heavily and at the time
of tho hot spell in beptemlier many
leaves yellowed and full, leaving the
fruit exposed.
(Vmriesy r.irule M'vwsteHd.
It seonietl, l ow over, that the great
est injury v as dono by tho Hrst ap
plication, us those trees sprayed lost
nearly as many leaves as the ones
treated three times.
Tw o rows adjacent to the paris green
treated trees were sprayed at the same
time with arsenate of lead, prepared
at the time of application, and used
at the rate of 1 pound to 2(Kl gallons,
liguring on tho actual dry weight of
dry arsenate. No lime was tisod and
no injury developed. Tho trees were
yellow Newtown pippins.
ihe third spraying experiment was
conducted on White Winter Pear
mains and Yellow Newtowus. Aseuite
lime was used. Ths compound is a
close relative to tho Kedzio mixture,
the difference being that sodium ars
enate instead of sodium itrseuito is
used iu its preparation.
The formula of tho Hrst application
was: Arsenate of soda, bi ounces,
lime li pounds, and linseed oil :i pints,
with HH1 gallons of water. Iu tho sec
ond application no oil was used and
the water was increased to 175 gal
lons ami t he lime to K pounds.
Tho third application was tho same
as the second. No injury to the foli
age was noted until after tho third
application, w hen there was some allot
ting and yellowing of the leaves of
tho Yellow Newtowus.
After tho hot spell a considerable
number of leaves yellowed and fell
from the Newtown trees and slight,
injury to the Pearinaius was noted.
The principal experiments wore sup
plemented by many others, in which
varying quantities; of tho ingredients
were tested, and also various substan
ces not commonly used in spraying
were tried.
lu no case was paris green used ou
Newtown foliage without injury
more or loss marked before the close
of the summer. Arsenate and ars
ouito of biro were also used in con
centration which would lie effective
against the corllin moth. Arseuitn of
lead was also found to be tpiito injur
ious. Arsenate of lead, however, proved
very safe, and the commercial brand
known as Disparouo was entirely
Swift's arsenate of lead wits slightly
injurious to peach foliage when used
in excessive quantities, but the am
ount required for the control of the
codliu moth had no injurious elfect.
r.xperimeuts with home made arse
nate of lead showed it to be somewhat
more injurious than Swift's, although
no injury was noticed iu tho spraying
work on the Yellow Newtowus.
In making a choice between those
supstances it is desirable to get tho
greatest control of the moth with the
least injury to the tree possible.
Apple counts were made with nil the
spraying experiments mid the percent
age of wormy fruit taken.
With the leatl arsenate tho wormles
averaged bl per cent, and the adjoin
ing row of oil paris green, Kiper cent,
("hecks in this part of tho orchard ran
10 per cent.
lu another part of tho on re hard oil
and paris green spraying averaged 21
per cent wormy, while corresponding
checks were 70 percent.
Tho arsenate of lime spraying ran !5G
per cent wormy for White Winter Pear
mains and Ml per cent for yellow New
towns. These figures do not show as good a
control as can be hail by spraying, for
last year's experience showed that a
!C per cent control was easily attain
able in tho valley orchards.
lu this year's experiments the first
spraying was not applied until June
21st which allowed the first brood of
worms to mature w ithout check. This
meant a large second brood to con
tend with. Then the number of ap
ples ou tho greater part of the trees
was small, which had the elfect of
raising the per cent of wormles.
Aside from tho Held of work a large
amount of time was spent iu the labo
ratory, t hielly with chemical analysis
of leaves taken from sprayed trees and
in killing experiments to determine
the insecticidal properties of various
materials. A fuller statement of the
laboratory work will appear later.
The object of the analysis was to
determine tho condition and the
amount of arsenic to be used.
As a result of the study of Pajaro
valley conditions for two seasons we
are notable to recommend paris green
for general spraying. Tho same may
be said of tho Kedzio mixture or the
Talt formula. In fact, tho only spray
which has combined good killing pro
perties with neutral behavior towards
foliage is arsenate of lead.
Lead arsenate will be somewhat
more expensive than any other pie
partition, but if it does the work this
point will not lie a vital objection.
With arsenate of lead spraying can
lie done at any time through the sea
son. This is very important, as the
control of tho codlin moth will de
mand an almost incessant treatment
from the opening of the blossoms to
the picking of the fruit.

cial asrenate of lead have lieeu in

the crates ami hallocks to the fanners

will permit the fanners to haul out
their crates curlier in tho season, mid

It will permit them to haul more at

with his work himself lie can keep bis
