Abstract:During July, 1895, while occupied as an Assistant in the Illinois State Laboratory of Natural History, in studying some fungous diseases of the chinch-bug I used many squash-bugs {Anasa tristis DeG.) for experimental purposes, their larger size making them convenient for use in certain investigations for which the chinch-bug is poorly adapted. These squash-bugs were kept in a laboratory breeding-cage, and daily supplied with fresh food and a suitable amount of moisture. They were soon observed to be dying in considerable numbers, although I could detect nothing unhealthful in their surroundings.
