The Fauna of the Orchard

  • Vincent B. Wigglesworth


You must all have already a copy of Dr. Massee’s book on The Pests of Fruit and Hops. There is, therefore, no need for me to emphasize the vast array of insects, mites, and spiders that are to be found on the trees and bushes of the orchard. In addition, there is a rich and complex fauna underground, ranging from the helpful earthworm, continually and unobtrusively cultivating the soil, to the troublesome nematodes that invade the roots of the fruit trees; and a moving population of birds which are searching the twigs and trunks for insects or pursuing other less worthy aims.
