A. W.MoreExcerpt from Fumigation for the Citrus White Fly: As Adapted to Florida ConditionsSir: I transmit herewith, for publication as Bulletin No. 76 of this Bureau, a report on fumigation for the white fly, as adapted to Florida conditions, by Dr. A. W. Morrill, special field agent.The investigation of the white fly problem in Florida is now in its second year, and the results gained of immediate practical importance are those which indicate best methods of control. Fumigation with hydrocyanic-acid gas during the short dormant period in winter, when there are no winged insects, seems to afford the greatest measure of control or possible extermination.

Gas fumigation under the horticultural conditions obtaining in Florida orange groves and the peculiarities of climate presents rather a distinct problem. This bulletin gives the results of the fumigation experiments of two winters in Florida, and demonstrates the entire applicability of this method of control to the white fly. This investigation has been under the general direction of Mr. C. L. Marlatt, Assistant Chief of this Bureau, with Doctor Morrill in field charge. The latter was aided during the winter of 1906-7 by Mr.

Stephen Strong, formerly horticultural commissioner of Los Angeles, Cal., and an experienced fumigator, and Mr. A. C. Morgan, and during the winter of 1907-8 by Messrs. E. A. Back, W. W. Yothers, and R. S. Woglum.The white fly is the big insect problem of Florida and other citrus districts on the Gulf coast, and the information given in this bulletin will be of immediate practical value to all citrus growers of the region indicated.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
