Injurious Insects of Michigan

Nature volume 13, pages 424425 | Download Citation



THIS useful and instructive pamphlet is to a great extent compiled from the writings of Messrs. Riley, Fitch, Le Baron, Walsh, Harris, Curtis, and Packard. It is illustrated by numerous woodcuts from the able pencil of the justly celebrated Prof. Riley, of Missouri. Its object is to enlighten farmers, gardeners, and fruit-growers of the State of Michigan, as to the general appearance, structure, and habits of noxious insects; at the same time suggesting means by which the increase of these pests to agriculture may be arrested. The “Colorado Beetle” and the “Grape Phylloxera” occupy a conspicuous place among these enemies of man.
