SAVILLE COUNTY AGENT Japanese Beetle Time Very soon now, if not already, you will begin to see the adult forms of the Japanese beetle. These members of the insect world are ravenous eaters and will feed on most any plant life. They are especially fond of roses, grape vines,apple trees and cherry trees. Control of this pest is not easy. Those which are sprayed direct- ly will die, but others fly in from other areas. It is necessary to keep spraying. Three level tablespoons of Me- thoxychlor 50% wettable powder and one tablespoon of Malathion enmlsion concentrate to each gal- lon of water makes a very effect- ive spray for use on both garden and ornamental plants. Beetle and Mites Important t Pests On Beans , l Mexican bean beetle and fffites ation of Methoxychlor plus Mala-' thion will do wonders for a bean patch and control of insects. The spray outlined for Japanese beet- le should be fine. Some folks prefer to dust while others prefer to spray. Regardless of the method you use, begin early and make applications at regular intervals of seven to ten days. Check Milking Machine Regular inspection and prompt adjustment of all parts of the milking machine equipment pays dividends. Be sure to check all equipment carefully and make a certain it is in top working con- dition. Milking machinery in good working condition and properly used cuts down on mastitis infec- tions. If you do not feel competent to judge the condition of your milking equipment, call your ser- vice man and have him check your equipment.
