H. B., Painesville, Ohio, says: - " Please find a portion of an apple scion with insects on. Will you please name the insect in Gardener's Monthly, and its mission. I never saw anything like it before. I obtained a quantity of scions from Willowdale. Chester County, Pa , and find several such as sample sent. I have destroyed all the insects as far as seen, with the scion. Will there likely anything remain to develop insects injurious to the trees? I find this insect on Winesap only."

[These are nothing but the eggs of the Katydid, and will do no injury. - Ed. G. M.]
