SPRAY FOR SCALE ON APPLE TREES IS DUEJPRIL15 Farmers and fruit growers of Kossuth county may receive Information regarding timely application of the various orchard sprays during the coming spring, as a result of arrangements made by the county Farm Bureau with the Agricultural Extension Service of Iowa State college. Cards briefly describing the nec'essary sprays and telling when to apply them for best results will be sent out from the Farm Bureau office free of charge to anyone desiring the service. It will soon be time to apply the dormant spray. This is needed only where scale Insects are on the trees; otherwise it is a waste of time and money to spray before growth starts. There are several of these scale Insects which affect apple trees, the most common being the oyster shell scale. This' pest Is much the more common in northern Iowa, but Is also found in many orchards In the southern half of the etate. The San Jose scale Is found only in a few counties along the Mississippi river, from Scott county south. These scale insects are tiny lice which suck the sap from trees, killing many limbs and greatly reducing the crop. Only a dormant spray will kill them. The heet time to apply this spray Is just before growth starts In the spring, or around April 15. Liquid lime sulphur diluted one gallon to eight gallons of water Is effective, or dry lime sulphur, 15 pounds dissolved In 50 gallons of water, will control the scale. There are also various dormant spraying olle on the market which are as good if not better than lime sulphur in controllng scale on apple trees, They are a little more expensive but much pleasanter to apply than: dormant strength lime-.sulphur. It requires a 6 per cent oil spray 1 to control oyster shell scale, while a 2 per cent spray will control thp San Jose scale. It Is essential to he thorough In applying this epray; the spray must come into contact with each scale to kill It. Another Gas Station. Burl, Apr. 7 — John and H. A.
