"Specimens of bugs that you
aent in are one of the common
wire worms. There is nothing
that can be done at present to con-

would suggest that as soon as the
crop is off. the ground be plowed
as deeply as possible and worked
as often as possible until time to
replant it in the spring. The con-
tinual working of the ground
brings the larvae and pupae of this
insect up to the air and destroys
them iu great numbers. The
mechanical action of farm imple-
ments is also a big factor in con-
trolling the wire worm*. t
