THI CIINCUL/0 AND BLACK litter.—The cur
culio has long been the plague of American
farmers and horticulturists, and probably has
operated more than all other causes combined
to deka' them from the cultivation of several
of the choicest varieties of fruit. In many
places the plum has been nearly exterminated;
the apricot, except in c ities and large towns,
is almost unknown; and our choicest fruitsare
sufferers to an extent that can only be compu
ted by millions of dollars.
On the eastern continent these fruits enjoy
entire immunity; in France, Italy. Persia and
Tartary, apricots are as plenty as peaches are
with'us ; and in some parts of Europe plum
trees line the highways. The dried fruit is so
cheap that it has appeared in our market at a
price little higher than the expense of the
boxes in which - it is contained.
- The.curculio is a little insect of the beetle
order. it is considerably smaller than the
ctim - mon house fly; dark-brown in color, varie
gated with spots of different hues, and is very
stigkeibus. At the approach of its enemy the
crow, or of other danger, it will simulate death
by drawing in its wings and trunk, so as to
resemble a bud or hemp seed, thus escaping,
because few of our winged insect devourers
prey on what they do not themselves destroy.
.Belonging to the numerous family of beetles,
it has a body hard and crisp, not easy to crush
without a special effort. Its powers of repro
duction are almost fabulous. One female is
more than able to destroy all the fruit of a
It is supposed that the curcalios rule from
tree to tree, or from orchard to orchard, on the
wing. Bat they are seldom seen to fly even
by those most familiar with them. When jar
red fronea tree they will sometimes open their
wings and come down at an angle, or occa
sionally fly off to another tree ; bu they gen
erally walk over the limbs of a tree with great
apparent deliberation, accelerating their pace,
however, when the weather is hot.
Observation has shown that the curculio
commences its operations on the apricot about
the middle of May, and on the plum about
eight or ten days later. It would seem to be
a Mussulman ; it makes its mark in the form
of a crescent wherever it operates. This is be
cause it does not change position, but simply
moves its head and proboscis. After punctur
ins the fruit the insect next rises a portion of
the epidermis, deposits an egg, pushes it to
the extremity of the incision, seals up the ori
fice with a mucilage, and then sets out for an
other fruit. The egg may be destroyed with a
little stick or by crushing with the thumb nail.
It hatches in a period of time varying from
four to fourteen days. according to the warmth
of the weather. The grub makes its way as
rapidly as possible to the heart of the fruit,
terminating its life, and the fruit falls to the
Sometimes, also, the fruit will have almost
ripened ready for market, moist, hot weather
will supervene, and - the whole crop perish of
rot. This is the work of the curculio. On
every fruit touched by decay will be found
that crescent trail, and although the egg de
posited when the stone is hardened perishes, it
decomposes, evolving a noxious substance,
hastening the decay of the fruit.
Having destroyed the fruit and fallen with
- it to the ground, the grub within remains a
short time and then descends into the earth.
;If the soil is a stiff clay it usually perishes ;
but if the ground is of a loose texture it will
go down to the depth of several inches, con
-struct for itself a cell, and undergo its meta
morphosis into a beetle. In a few weeks it
will emerge; and it generally remains during
the winter dormant in some protected place.
As soon, as warm weather commences in the
spring, it is ready to enter upon the reproduc
tion of its kind on our fruits and trees. Even
berries in the woods are subject to its ravages.
A vast number of expedients have been em
ployed to arrest the ravages of this insect.
Fumigation, tar, washes, etc., have' been tried
witleimperfeet success. A female cureulio hay
in several hundred eggs to deposit, will find
means to do so in spite of all the offensive odors
tbat castle. made;. washes can annoy her but
little; tar she can crawl over as soon as it shall
have beoome glazed en the outer surface, and
at .any rate she can fly upward or to another
tree at pleasure. Other means of destruction
mast be divined. At present we know only
that we must direct our offensive operations
at the life of each individual insect. The
prompt destruction of all "windfalls," or fruit
dropping prematurely from the tree, would, of
course, extirpate the grubs which they contain.
Hoge running where they have free access .to
the affected trees will generally do this before
.vermin has forsaken the fruit. But to pre
aerie the growing crop the moat effectual ex
pedient is to "jar" or shake the trees daring
the period that the fruit is "setting" and in
the earlier stages of growth, first having spread
sheets beneath to catch the falling insects,
which shotld be crashed or burned without be
The depredations of this insect have also
been arrested by removing the earth around
the body and roots of the trees for a consid
erable distance and supplying its place with
dirt brought from a distance. The success of
this operation is probably attributable to the
destruction of the pupae or chrysalides in the
removal. To render this expedient successful,'
it should be done after the fall of the affected
fruit in the interval previous to its emergence
in the insect form generally in the month of
July. If the removed earth should be dried
in a - hot sun, the chrysalides would perish, a
certain degree of moisture being indispensable
at this stage of their existence.
The Hessian fly was extinguished from this
country by the ichneumon, just when the total
destruction of the wheat crop was apprehen-
ded. .But the infant curculio by ita position
inside of - fruit, and the more mature insect by
its horny covering, seem to be exempt from
destructive parasites. Cedar birds, robins
and crows, by eating premature cherries, red on
one side only, destroy the worm in them and
prevent future prorogation; a drought occa
sionally destrnye the pupae; paving the ground
is sometimes successful ; but the enterprising
horticulturist takes the matter directly into
his own hands. By commencing about the
middle of May, fighting the depredators ener
getically for several weeks when the weather
is warm, and prolonging hostilities till the
time of ripening, the prospects of mastery
are tolerably fair. But with such an enemy
at hand eternal vigilance seems to. be the price,
and it must be paid, or the plum, apricot, and
some other valuable fruits must be dispensed
with or procured elsewhere.
of the plum and other trees, com
monly known as the ' , black knot," has been
attributed by some horticulturists to.the opera
tion of the curculio. The question is still in
controversy. Observers cave noted the ores

Others have accounted for this matter by a
somew hat diffecent hypothesis. They consider
the knot a distinct disease, in which the sap
becomes acid like the fruit, tempting the our
eulio to deposither eggs there. If this is true,
it MCOIIIIIB satisfactorily for all the similarities
which have been observed.
Among the means to destroy the knot. wash
ing with salt or medicated water during the
earlier stages has been recommended; also
cutting off the affected branches. But they
