Little Variance Reported In The Abundance Of Larch SawBtes
Adults By Entomologist Connected With the Forestry School

Thi Abundance of adults o: the
larch sawfly, one of the most lang-a
erous forest defoliators, has varied
only slightly during the past few
years, according to Prof. Samuel A.
Graham, entomologist for the Lake
States Experiment Station and pro-
lessor o: forest entomology in the
School of Forestry and Conservation.'
Professor Graham has been investi-
gating the habits of the larch sawfly
and repjorts that their numbers have
been uniformly small and as a result
very littl serious defoliation has re-
sulted.
This comparative uniformity in
abundance has been maintained in
spite of the fact that weather condi-j
tions which affect the larvae on the
trees have fluctuated sufficiently to
cause a considerable variation in the
number of larvae reaching full
growth. A large proportion of the
sawfly larvae that drop from the trees
to spin cocoons in the loaf litter or
moss beneath the trees perish before

quantit ive imea suremenltsz and experi-
ments.
"When the larva are very abund-
ant," Graham said, "a large propor-,
tion of them are destroyed than when
they occur in fower numberos, so that
the mnubers of adults emerging fron
cocoons have1 ben compart ively uni-
form. The factors which are respon-
sible for the deal I of the hibernating
sawl ies has nm t b'n understood very
closely.
'"The hazards of hibernation are of
two classes; the physical factors,
such as heat or cold, dissication, or

saturat ion with water; and th' biotic
factors, such as parasites o preda-
ceos animals. Of the lpredaceous an-
heals some of the smaller niaiuumals
are of much importance. In one tam-
arack vamp it was found that 78
per cent oi the hibernating sawflie4
had been destroyed by mice.
To discover that such animals as
mice, which are usually rogarded as
pests. are valuable in preventing in-
jurious outbreaks - of the larh saw-
flies will doubtless be a matter of sur-
prise to many and should emphasize
the fact that we should not be too
hasty in condemning any group of
animals until we have more than a
superficial knowledge of their habits."
