There are no boll weevil In North County. I make this me boll weevil. This is no guarantee tluit we will miss lK>ll weevil damage entirely this year.

Since that time there have been 25 or 30 other farmers in this week with cotton .stalks showing plant lice or aphid infestation, along with blue DV blru'k crawling worms or bugs. Actually, little blue worms have orange 01- sold stripes running horizontally across their bodies. They are the best friends farmers ever had. They are the larvae or worm stage in the life history of lady bug beetles. If fminers did not have 'lady bugs in their cotton fields, plant lice or nphids would destroy our cotton. Actually, lady bugs and the larvae are the only things that eliminate piant lice. Many farmers think hot weather eliminates plant lice. What actually happens is that hot weather helps lady bug egg.i to hatch in five days and the lady bug larvae live entirely off ot plant lice. i.Mr. Ward says a few of his County, part of the research pro- farmers had a different opinion grain on pasture development for about blue bugs.)

That is fall of 1947, while the other was part of the reason the University a 2-year-old, according to Mr. Mabry. Both were grade Hereford steers from (he Brndy, Texus area and had been purchased at a feeder caif market grade of good. Of the remaining five steers, two were Angus which had been produced on thcstation, and the remaining three were mates to the 3-year old Hereford steer. Value of Pasture Cited 1 The trttckloari was taken to St. j Louis on June 14. The three animals which had been pastured continuously shrunk 4.5 per cent, while the other four lost 6.5 per cent in shrinkage in marketing. Mr. Mabry pointed out the value of good pastures in producing these high beef gains. The three grassfeti steers gamed an average of one and one-half pounds per day during the entire grazing period, he indicated. They were wintered on fall-sown oat and Balbo rye pastures. The only dry feed they received during that time was three pounds of cottonseed cake and 20 pounds of hay only dry feed they^ received during that time was three pounds o[ cot- per animal during a two-day period in January when the pastures were covered with ice and sleet. Two spent the late spring nml summer on Bermuda grass pastures on which lespedcza w a s over/seeded: the third grazed on .sweet stidan grass during the summer of 1019, The other four steers had been wintered on one and one - half pounds of cottonseed cake and 15 pounds of rather coarse hay per day, Mr. Mabry staled. Tn late March they were put on orchard grass pastures or on pastures ot Bermuda grass which had received complete fertili/cr and which contained a considerable amount of volunteer Kentucky bluegrass and white clover. These four animals gained an average of thiTL- pounds per head per day from the time they went on pasture until they were «>ld. thick enough to require poisoning.- Cotton Mea hoppers have.tueu inspected or accused of knocking young squares off of cotton, for in this county until about July 6th. three weeks now. Actually, there have been no cotton flea hoppers On July B, 10, and 11 I found a very small number of cotton flea hoppers (first itisiar). They were all right in the terminal bud ol tiie cotton, had not yet shed their skins '.o develop wings. Everywhere that I have found cotton flea hoppers i have also found bigeye bugs. They live ofr of cotton flea hoppers and similar insects. There is no wny ol predicting whether or not cotton flett lum- pers will do harm to our cotton. Except in 1348 flee hoppers have disappeared in warm weather arid, very few fanners have known that they ever had the flea hopper in their cotton. I hate to talk bugs all the time because I think it causes some people to worry about bugs when there is no cause for it. If you will quit asking bug Questions I will tjuit writing about them.
