Department of Botany and Entomology
During the past season a large number of reports and inquiries came to the Experiment Station in reference to insect ravages. As much time as could be spared was spent in visiting the infected regions and giving such help and advice as was possible. The larger part of the month of June was spent in visiting regions where the Rocky Mountain Locusts had appeared and in helping the farmers in constructing the "hopper dozers." During the month of August the region infested with the Green Plant Bug was visited and as much information as possible was gathered in reference to it.
