COTTON LOUSE ENEMY
One Insect That Proves to Ba
the Planter’s Friend.
the convergent lady-bug
Instead of Being Injurious to the Cot
ton Plant This Little Bug Is
of Inestimable Benefit to
Every one knows that the cotton. In
common with nearly ail other kinds of
plants, isflUlbject to the attack of in
sects, but -very few realize 1 lie im
mense variety of them that depend
more or less upon this staple for food.
The cotton worm, cotton boll worm,
Mexican cotton boll weevil, cotton
louse, etc., are but a few examples of
the most common, but. fortunately only'
a few are at all apt to appear, in serious
numbers, and these are very variable
in their appearance. Sometimes they
occur in such abundance* as to appear 1
to jeopardise the eutjL crop in a
more or less area, while
again their numbers arc op insignifi
cant as to pass unnoticed.
This striking variability is due. i\
part to a great many causes, some of.
them easy to understand, others niert*
obscure in their nature. Nothing is of
greater Importance, though, than the
yveather conditions at certain seasons ol
the year. Most insects thrive on a dry
and warm season, while tne opposite
is true of fungous diseases. Last year
the excessive rains and long continued
periods of cloudy weather made tlis
conditions very favorable for the latter
mentioned, and the result was an out
break, quite serious in some section It
of the fftngous disease known as cotton
anthj aapiosc. This season tile dry and
hot weather which has continued
throughout May and June, will, unless
July and August am extremely wm
render a recurrence of this disease
extremely improbable, but it has been
very .favorable to the insects.
Lu :kily rnost of the insect pests are 1
restricted to a Lvf generatttms per'
year, and it will -on! that, account re
quire more than ou*iy favorable season
for such varieties to'Jncrease to alarm
ing lumbers. A fewjtafe, however, dif
ferent in their nature anew
generation every teifls days or two
weeks, and these sorts will, unless
soitie other natural cause intervenes,
increase many thou/sand fold in the
coarse of a favorable season.
The cotton lo#6e Ipelongs to the lat
ter class. This inwe'et only requires
about ten days to develop from a new
ly . born young t.a -iili adwit capable of
producing youhgmn' its oVm account,

Both the young and j

be found attached to the leaves and .

covered with lice. It is specimens of
