Abstract

Aside from the interest attaching to this family of the Homoptera as a remarkably specialized group of insects, the fact that it includes some of the most destructive insects affecting woody plants, and that one member of the family, the San Jose scale, is at present spreading rapidly throughout the eastern United States, and a most serious menace to the fruit interests of Iowa, is sufficient reason for giving it a special notice at this time. It seems also unnecessary to apologize for including in this article some matter for the use of teachers, students, and others who may be called upon to examine scale insects in connection with the popular interest that is bound to appear with the further extension of the San Jose scale.
