. The insect and other allied pests of orchard, bush and hothouse fruits and their prevention and treatment . Insect pests; Fruit. 1 i^g m 1 llill. âLAi;VA ANI' NYMPH OF AIM'LE SUCKKI;. ((;;veatly enlnrged.) observations of Fniiey (G) tincl myself, are usually brighter than the- females, but according to Schmidberger (1) it is the reverse ; moreover, the latter descriljes their colour as being very much more varied than we usually find in Eng- land. The male, lie says, " in wedding attire is either of a lively green striped on the back with j'ellow, a dark yello^⢠with broad stripes, or almost completely green ^vith dark yellow dots, the abdomen entirely yellow. The females are of a prettier colour and somewhat larger; the entire back of the female, reaching as far down as the forceps at tlie extremity of the abdomen, is red, striped with greenish-yellow and brown and the abdomen is orange-yellow or green; tliey are green or greenish-yellow on other occasions." The amount of ^â aria- tion differs in dilferent places and in different seasons. It is the general greenish shade that will be chiefly noticed by the growers. These adttlts live on the foliage all the time, sometimes we find them at rest on the boughs and trunks. They apparently do no damage in this stage. Tairing takes place towards September, and from then on into November they deposit their eggs. Before coptilating Schmidberger (1) says five or six of them assemljle on an apple leaf and each male selects his female, and that whilst pairing is going on a tubercle appears on the last ring of the extreme part of the body, ^^'hich remains there imtil pairing is over. The eggs are laid in ^â¢arious places, but especially on the spurs, generally around the leaf- ridges, some placed horizon- tally, others in a more irregular manner ; many others are placed on till' fine hairs on the year's growth and some on the buds. 1 have. /â '. i:.h,Hi, l:10.--NV.MI'll ,<KINS 1.1- AI'l'I.F, slCKKr,..
