A farmer of one of the central
countries wrote to State Zoologist
H. A. Surface, Harrlsburg, about
soaking corn In either coal tnr or
dilute carbolic acid to keep crows
from pulling up nowly-planted corn.
He said that he suffered much dam-
age In past years through the depre-
datlons of crows, and wnnts to get i
ahead of them this year. !
Professor Surfnce's answer to this
letter contained tho following:
"It is commonly reported thnt corn
should be soaKeci a row minutes in
water containing a solution of coal
tar or gas tar, and then spread and
allowed to dry. This will make tho
corn so bitter that the crows will be
suspicious of It and will not cat it
for fear of being poisoned. I pre
sumo dilute carbolic acid would
servo the same purpose, but I am
not certain nbout this.
Different devices have been recom-
mended to keep tho crows from pull-
ing corn, one of which is strings
stretched around and across the
corn Held. It is also recommended
to sow corn on top of the ground
nbout the time it commences to
shoot through the soil, in order to
feed the crows at this time, so they
will not pull the grain that Is plant
ed. It Is best for a person to try
one or more methods nnd make a
practice of that which he finds best."
The advice of Prof. H. A. Surface,
State Zoologist, was asked by a
resident of the Cumberland Valley
a sto what to do for his cherry trees,
which every spring for the last two
years have been badly damaged by
black lice destroying the young
shoots as well as the stems bearing
the cherries.
The reply of Professor Surface
was as follows:
"The Insect Injuring your cherry
tree Is the blnck plant louse, often
called the cherry aphis. One of the
best remedies is to spray with one
pound of whale oil soap In five gal
lons of water, just after the leaf
buds open, but before the leaves are
expanded, and, of course, before the
flowers come. The spraying" should
not be done If the young lice are
not seen to be present. It should
be held for immediate application
when you do see them. Watch for
them on tho leaves, and when they
come, give them a spraying before
the leaves curl.
One Important point is to redch
them before they curl In the leaves.
After the leaves have curled the
material will not come into direct
contact with them, and they will not

the Division of Zoology, of the
Pennsylvania Department of Agri
culture, Harrlsburg, for June, 1909."
A Chambersburg lawyer sent to
Professor H. A. Surface, State Zoo
logist, Harrlsburg, a portion of a
limb of a five-year-old apple tree,
which he described as "full of punc
tures cnused by some kind of an
Insect, and by .carefully cutting
away the outer edge you will find a
miniature worm, to my eye (looking
through a glass) largely represent
ing the apple tree borer."
Tho correspondent continued by
i saying: "All tho fruit growers in
this section, as well as myself, are
at a loss to know who our new
found enemy is, how ho arrived, and
what we can do to protect ourselves
against his ravages," and then ask
ed the following questions:
1. In your opinion was this tree
killed by the Insect sent you?
2. Wns tho death of tho tree caus
ed solely by the apple tree
3. Is this miniature Insect an off
spring the apple tree borer?

4. Did this Insect attack tho tree
nfter having been killed by
tho borer?
C. Docs this Insect work upon llvo
trees or only upon tho wood
nnd sap wood under tho bark
or dead trees?
C.-Is this Insect likely to develop
Into a moth and In that way
perpetuato Its species, and
what remedy would you sug
gest? State Zoologist Surfaco found the
Insect to bo tho Fruit Bark Beetle
(Scolytus rugulosus), and said: "In
orchards of thrifty trees this would
be a new pest, but In old, declining
and dying orchards, It Is 'an ola
tlmer." He then answered the above
queries, as follows:
j nmi 2. I believe tho primary
cause of the death of your
young apple tree was tho
borer, and that this Insect
was secondnry, or followed
in the wake of the borer. I
mean to say that it attacks
trees that are already de
clining, or dying, rather than
those that are thrifty.
-It is not the young or offspring
of tho apple borer, but will
transform Into a small dark
beetle about the size of No.
4 shot.
4.Thls Insect attacks the tree
only after It has been Injur
ed by some other cause.
5. It works upon trees that are In
a declining, run-down or dy
ing condition, and does not
multiply In them after they
are dead, excepting to com
plete its life history. The
channels which you note were
cut by the larva or grub
which transforms Into a
beetle. If you will cut off a
section of the injured wood
and put it in a fruit Jar with
a screen cloth over it; you
will be able to obtain the
pests in the mature rorm
next summer.
G. It Is not liable to develop Into a
moth, but into a small
beetle, as mentioned above
"Spraying, especially with lime
sulphur wash, which leaves a sedi
ment like a thin paint on the bark,
helps to prevent it. There is no
euro after the adult has bored Into
the hark and laid the eggs from
which the grubs come. Cutting
back a tree, and fertilizing and cul
tivating to invigorate It, will prove
