Halt Army Worms, But Corn Borer Make Gain "Army Worms are at a stand-* still, but corn borers are really bad," according to Herman Stuj der, office, manager of the ASu in Algona. The' army worm problem has, lessened, due in many; spraying done at the right time, It seems the dark green worms like warm, humid weather, anc? sunshine is a hindrance to theit march through corn, bean anfl clover fields, and the appearance of the' sun has helped stop the- attack that began a couple of weeks ego, Spraying result?, in many places were terrific. So good, in fact, that the ground in fields sprayed was thick with dead worms. When these ever-present pests are aided by the type of weather conditions we've had this year, they really come into their own in a big way. Usually, the largest infestations immediately follow flood conditions such as the ones we had a few weeks ago. The heat hatched them out in droves, and their wholesale attacks on some fields have made clover and grass disappear completely — ' "'"•" *-~—-—• Walt Bleldi, who farms.north- east'Of Algona ih PWm Creek township', wHen' asked what h.o was- doing about 1 corn borers, stated—"I'm letting them bore." This seems to be the general answer, according to Studer, from most farmers. The toughest part about spraying for corn borers seems to be in making the decision just as to when the spray Will do any good. Naturally, if the right time is selected, the kill is always good, but, in many cases it has been estimated that several different spray jobs are necessary, to do the killing, making tK6 , cost more than the corn is worth. Heavy dew or rains at the right time controls the borers normally, but in the case of Mother Nature the answer is the same—It's got to be at the right It was announced by the ASC Monday that all corn delivery to bin sites will begin, Monday, Aug 16, weather permitting. All counties in this area are starting the same date this, year. Tuesday, July 27, 1954 Alflftfid (to.)
