Lime-Sulphur Solution and
A Pennsylvania fruit grower wrote
to Prof. H. A: Surface, State Zoolo-
gist, Harrisburg, stating that he had
used.undiluted concentrated lime-sul-
fur solution on his peach trees for
borers, and asked if he was right in do-
To this Professor Surface replied as
“Your statement that you used the
concentrated lime-sulfur solution
without dilution on your peach trees,
and fyour inquiry as to whether you
did right. is very much like ‘‘locking
the stable door after the horse is
stolen.”” If you did not fully under-
stand the directions, you should haye
obtained further instruction before
making the application. I am of the
opinion that it will not injure your
trees, but it may do so, as it was en-
tirely too strong for the necessity of
the purpose for which it was used. It
was, to say the least, a waste of ma-
terial, even if it is not a menace to
the tree to use the application so
strong while it is not in the dormant
stage. It is very important for grow-
ers to follow directions exactly, and
be sure that they do this.
