a larger area than In 1934, according
to Dr. L M. Hawley, senior entomolo

Northern New Jersey, northeastern
Maryland, northern Delaware, and therj
southern tip of New York were -the
scenes of new Invasions as the hordes
spread westward to Pennsylvania as
far as Lancaster. ;
Each year, they usually travel from
five to ten miles further than the pre

exceeded, the ten-mile limit)
'Although he could not give a com
