Insect and Other Pests

Insect and Other Pests.

New Zealand offers a large field for the investigations of an entymologist if he could devote the necessary time to the work. The country is swarming with the various forms of insects injurious to fruit trees and plants. Our turnip fields have been decimated for the past three years to a considerable extent by the ravages of the Diamond-backed moth (Plutella eruciferarum). The Grass Grub is also a source of much loss to farmers. The causes, and better still, the prevention of these pests offer a field for much investigation.
