Smith, extension ento- The campaign on the farm de— fense front now may Well consist‘ ,of a planned cleanup of debris,( crop refuse, weeds and fence rows to guard against unduly heavy in-, infestation in the spring, “The accumulations of leaves, lboxes, boards and other debris serves as excellent places Where many different kinds of insects can find protection from Winter,” says the entomologist. “For example, 'the common garden slugs, whiChl feed on so many vegetables and flowers, over winter, breed and} lay their eggs under boards and Flea beetles, leaf hop- the winter in similar places, as do, many other insects.” Smith calls attention to the fact that the problem varies in differ-i -ent parts of the state, pointingl iout that in western Washingtonl the ground in the early fall tol, prevent development of the carrot, rust fly, while this precaution isi not necessary in most of eastern Washington. However, as a gem. ' moval of crop debris from the gar- l y l The entomologist also points out the value of using a cover crop on 1 garden spots wherever this prac- tice is possible. The cover cropl not only supplies valuable fertilizer 1 as green manure in the spring, prevents leaching and washnig, but ' acts to hold in check weed. growth. Many weeds serve as al- ! ternate hosts for insects which later shift their attacks to vege— tables. i Admonition to destroy crop: debris should not be taken to‘ mean stopping of the practice 'of'g \ l l for fertilizer use. A properly pre- l pared compost heap with the use! of recommended materials to aid decomposition generates enoughl internal heat to assure death of nearly all insects present.
