THEODORE DAY'S DISCOVERY
KILLING TENT CATERPILLARS
DISEASE AMONG PEST SPREAD
ING RAPIDLY STATE MAY

icr jurors 01 jjuigcni woric suc
ceeds in Creating a Death-Denllng
A disease has affected tho tent
caterpillar, which pest is defoliating
tne trees in this section of tho coun
try. It is thought to bo the disease
discovered by Theodore Day, of Dy
berry, who for a long time assiduous
ly worked upon the caterpillar In
hopes of finding some remedy or
death-dealing disease which might be
usea to exterminate the pest. Mr,
Day, a few years ago. when tho cat
erpillar was eating the leaves from
the trees, was successful in discover
ing this disease. The disease snread
rapidly at that tlmo and for a year
or two fow tents have been seenl
Theodore Day, at the time of mak
ing the discovery, told the writer
that a' small pinch of .the dust
sprinkled upon nests of the cater
plller would dry them up. In the
tent of an affected camp the worms
die suddenly and tho disease spreads
rapidly. The death dealing disease
is procured by pulverizing the dried
caterpillars, affected by the disease
and then their dust is applied to live
tents. Mr. Day communicated with
Professor H. A. Surface, state zoolo
gist, about his discovery and the
professor told him that he would try
and get an appropriation from the
State at the next legislature to carry
on the good work. To date, we are
informed, no sum has been sot aside
for this important discovery and un
less checked the tent caterpillar will
do untold damage to forestry and
William H. Bullock, district state
agriculturist, brought to our office on
Monday a specimen of tho catemll
lar tent, which showed the effects of
tho Day disease upon the pest. The
specimen was sent to Professor Sur
face for examination.
