J LOCUSTS ATTACK APPLE ORCHARDS Fruitgrowers Say the Cicadas Have Done Damage to Trees Bordering on Woodland Gettysburg, Pa., June 24. Ac. cording to an orchardman who baa visited many of the orchards in the great Adams county fruit belt, the locusts have done considerable damage in some of the orchards. Those that are bordered by or lay close to woodlands seem to be the ones that are hurt the most. For two or three rows of trees back into the orchard places where the trees have been stung and the eggs deposited can be seen in large numbers and many of the branches are so badly stung that they are breaking off. The most of this damage eeeras to be on the growth of last year, this year's shoots not being damaged to any great extent. Neither are the young trees or young orchards hurt very much, the older places apparently suffering the most' damage. It is almost certain that the work of the locusts, together with the cold snap which occurred late in the spring, will materially affect the crop to be harvested and, instead of having a bumper crop, such as the Adams county orchardists are accustomed to gathering, there will likely not be more than three - fourths of the usual crop on the trees when picking' time comes. This means the loss of thousands of dollars to the growers. Indications are that other fruits will also yield, a short crop. It is stated that there are practically no peaches on the trees this year. Cher ries also will yield a poor crop. Both peach and cherry trees were full of bloom, but it is evident that the freezing weather of the late spring spouea tne iruii ana causea n to fall from the trees before it matured.
