FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1944 BLYTIIEV1LLJ3. (ARK.) COURIER; NEWS v; Enemy Borer Is Of Peach Trees Fumigating With PD.B -.Will Help To Insure *Vigor Of Orchard The peach tree borer is one of the most' important insects' attacking peaches in North Mississippi County orchards, . says Kfith. ..J...J3i|l>rcy, county ne'ent. ' ' ' " The borer, ranking next (o the Sun ijosc scale as an enemy of peach trccs^.must be controlled 11 the trees arc tp bo maintained in-.the. high stateTof vigor which Is necessary for large'yieldSj'lhe county agent says. Fumigating' with psiradichlorolxMi- xencj.(ofleu called PDB) will kill tlie borer?. It has Ulie added adrau- tnges.. of being cheap and caiisjng trees. vare]y Injury by the peach tree borer is recognized by the gum and frass that-arc thrown outsat the base ol the .tree,; the county agent says This'shows (ha,t the borer'Usually works at or somewhat below (he surface of the soil. In' preparing for fumigation, ' StT« 50% On ; TRUSSES Steel and Elastic STEWARTS D r o f S t t r • Main & Lake Phone. 2822 stones, weeds, and grasses m.tisj be removed from aroiimi the base of the; tree; and the soil surface W- cled. Pnrndlclilorobcnwn'e should hen be evenly distributed around the trunk of the tree in a continuous band about 2 inches wide. The inside of the band should be un Inch from.the bn.rk of the tree, fl should be covered with a few shovelfuls of dirt, and then tramped down.with the shovel. It Infested trees show evidence thtit the borers arc working well above the ground, a mound of earth should be thrown up around the trees before the [Jaradichloraben- zene Is applied,,so that It will be tit Ihe same 1 level"ns'\fii highest•'bor- "s. An ounce of pnrjuiirhlorobenzcno is required for trees sis years bid or older, the county agent sajd. For trees four'or five years' olii,"(hrce- fourllis of an ounce Is necessary. On younger- trees one-fourth tc one- half ounce may be used. Since there Ls some ^dnn^er. of injuring: the tender bark 'of 'you'ng'trecs; Vb'inilhg'by hand is safer. However, the danger of Injury by 'Using - paradtchloro- benzcno can be reduced by tearing down the-mounds four to six weeks after the treatment, the. county agent explained. This Is especially important when treating young trees or when treating after November 1. Since npple trees are susceptible [to injury from paradichlorobenzenc, " this material should never IK used in apple orchards. The best time for treating North Mississippi County peach trees Is between Sept. 25 and Oct. 14. II treatment is delayed beyond the recommended time, the borers will have time to do some damage, and the damjer.of, injury to trees from the treatment' is Increased. • ' • • At Fair To Feature Most Outstanding Birds Groftn In This Section Advance' animal Poultry Show to be held ho Mississippi County Fair, beginnm^ Tuesday, point io it the U'showing of the highest qmiily poultry ever placed on exhibition in the animal poultry show.
