Title:An Experimental and Observational Study of the Chinch Bug in Relation to Climate and Weather
Author(s):Shelford, Victor Ernest
Subject(s):Chinch bug -- Control.
Blissus leucopterus Say
Agricultural ecology
Abstract:The abundance of the chinch bug (Blissus leucopterus Say) has long been associated with variations and peculiar distributions of rainfall and temperature in particular years or series of years. A desire for more detailed evidence from the experimental side led to this investigation. Unfortunately, however, the chinch bug is difficult to study in this way, and at the same time the task could not be made the sole or primary work of even one investigator. Accordingly, general cultures instead of close observation of individuals had to play an important role in the work.
