TO TUB EMTOU. [Circular.—Other, papers please copy.] Sir, —The undersigned has received notice that: a beetle destructive "to the apple has been imported into New South Wales from California. The larva of this beetle attacks th« apple m a manner so similar to that of the codlin moth that little difference is'perceptible m the appearance or condition of the fruit. Mr Frazer S. Crawford, the Adelaide scientist, describes these larvae, of, which several infest the same apple, as "footless" grubs of a beetle, the largest being one-tenth of an inch long and half that width, m color white, or pale rose with a white head. This insect, if, not already, m New Zealand, may arrive with the season's shipI ment of fruit;, and once established it will become a more destructive pest than the codlin moth and harder to fight. Therefore all persons finding such insects are earnestly requested to" destroy them at once. Any specimens (sent alive m the apple) to determine the species with' an account of the circumstances, would be i'eceived with thanks by R. Allan Wight, Entomologist to the Papakura F.G.A., etc, Address : Paeroa, Auckland.
