j Too often when we plant fruit trees
we concern ourselves with the fruit

ture of the tree. This is especially
[true of the peach tree.
One of the most destructive pests'
of the peach tree Is the peach tree'
borer. Most commercial peach grow
ers know about this pest and take the
necessary control measures. However,
the gardener who has only a few trees
usually doesn’t know about the borer
and is apt to lose some of his trees
or have them seriously damaged be
fore he finds out about it.
The borer damages the tree by eat

sues between the bark and wood us

below the ground level. The presence
of the pest may be shown by deposits
of gum and frass around the tree at

did. I can recall removing twenty-one
borers from one large peach tree.
Needless to say, the tree was in a
very weak condition. In recent years
'two chemicals paradichlorobenzene
and ethylene dichloride—have been
used as a control with very good re
sults. In using paradichlorobenzene

will not damage the tree if it touches
it. Both materials change to a gas

kills the borer while still in the tree.

materials, dosage to be used and time
