Lackey-Moth, or Phalaena Bombyx Neustriae, is a species of moth that commits great depredations on fruit-trees ; around the branches of which it deposits numerous eggs; that exhibit the appearance of a necklace. These are very hard, and adhere closely to the bark ; so that it becomes necessary to remove them by a knife; care being taken to spare the bark as much as possible. Next, the composition and powder mentioned in the article Tree (p. 238 of this vol.), must be applied to every part which may have been wounded by the instrument.
