By Dorothy Jonson No one insect does more damage to lawns today than the lawn moth or sod webworm. I 'no longer think of them as being a spring, summer or autumn problem. 1 do not think of them as being seasonal at all because from early spring until late fall, new cycles of lawn moths will appear in various sections of the country with their subsequent hatch of sod webworms c r e a t i n g brown patches in lawns. Proper liming of the application of control measures for this pest is very important. Do not apply control measures when the moths are "on the wing," nor immediately afterward. Wait at least a week or 10 days. Then, whatever material is used will be applied as the young worms are starting to hatch and will be many times more effective. There are several products effective against sod webworms, but many of these materials are poisonous to the birds that eat the worms. For that reason 1 like to use a combination of copper and ether. It will kill the sod webworms and yet is not poisonous to the birds. (Continue^ from Page 32) dividual and the blooms perform well as cut flowers. The familiar coreopsis is an exceedingly vigorous per- e n n i a 1. The golden-yellow flowers are light and airy in effect; they also serve well as indoor decorations, lasting for days in water. . P E L A R G O N I U M S very likely produce more and ask for less than almost any other comparable garden subject. The flowers appear intermittently throughout the year. The plants are at their peak during summer and fall. Not too much water is recommended and the soil definitely must not be on the rich side. During the winter season the plants tend to go dormant and water should be withheld. A sunny exposure will prove ideal. Other plants that do well in poor soils include: diosma, lavendula, ivy salvia, splen- dens, aloe, agave, dianthus, chrysanthemum frute s c e n s, gazania, vinca, statice, hem- erocallis, euphorbia, gaillardia and mesembryanthemum.
