During the winter there were a large number of question sheets sent out to farmers of the state making inquiries concerning injurious insects. These inquiries have been well responded to and have brought in a large amount of valuable information that will be a help in carrying on future entomological work at the Station.
The insects treated of in the present Bulletin are, for the greater part, those concerning which most inquiries have been received and about which the farmers seem to be m most need of information.
It is sincerely hoped that, during the present year, the farmers of the state will observe more carefully and report promptly to the Experiment Station any insect injury that may come under their observation that I may the more intelligently carry on my department of experimental work in the interests of agriculture.
