Apple Worn Spray
b Needed New
By CJAtKL E. VanDEMAN *
These warm days are Ideal for
the apple grower's worst Insect
pest, the codling moth, to start
their damage. Every year during
the month ot May these small
inoonseplcuous moths lay their
eggs on the apple leaves and
fruits. Wlthia a few days these
eggs hatch and start eating their
way into the apples.
In orchards where this pest has
not been too severe during the
recent years, thorough sprays of
lead arsenate (3 pounds to 100
gallons) every two weeks until
July 1st should control it. However,
in orchards where growers
have had serious loss from
wormy apples, the best control
is to use 2 pounds of Df>T (the
50 per cent wettable powder
DDT will not only kill the
young worms as they start to eat
their way into the apple but this
insecticide kills many of the
moths even before they lay their
eggs and also the young worms
while they are crawling across
the sprayed surface before they
take their first bites.
One Alexander County orchard
I visited this week, which
has a heavy crop of apples, has a
large number of very recent
worm holes. This orchard was
Just sprayed "last week with lead
arsenate and lime sulphur but
to control this serious worm
problems the grower will need
to put on right away a thorough
spray of DDT and either wettable
sulphur or Fermate. Another
cover spray of the same materials
should be put on ten days
later. Now is the time to stop the
worms before they establish a
"beachhead" and "dig in'' for a
second "invasion" in July and
August. Each worm not killed
now means there will be a dozen
or more in the second brood.
