Only the commoner, or more important, insect pests working within the State are considered. Nor are all the important pests included- though, of cereal pests, I believe most, if not all, are included.In compiling the information presented herewith, the writings of reputable economic entomologists, generally, have been consulted and relied on. Bruner of Nebraska, Comstock of New York, Forbes of Illinois, Lintner of New York, Osborn of Iowa, Riley of the United States Agricultural Department, Saunders of Canada, Smith of New Jersey, Weed of New Hampshire, and others, are such entomologists. The Kansas notes have been derived from the reports of the State Board of Agriculture and the State Horticultural Society- from the published notes of Prof. F. H. Snow, of the University of Kansas, Prof. E. A. Popenoe, of the State Agricultural College, and Mr. G. C. Brackett. secretary of the State Horticultural Society- and from the unpublished notes of the Department of Entomology in the University. For valuable suggestions constantly offered during the course of compilation, I am indebted to Chancellor F. H. Snow and Dr. S. W. Williston, of the University.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
