More than 40 years ago the late Dr. Stephen A. Forbes wrote in part as follows: “It is not the facts of entomology we discover, but those which we persuade the farmer, the gardener or the fruit grower to use diligently for the protection or the preservation of his crops, which make our entomology economic. To bring a result to bear on the practice of one man when a thousand are suffering from the want of it is to fail 99.9 per cent of our proper undertaking. We must first do exhaustive, conclusive, practical economic work, and then we must find means to get that work utilized or it is an economic dead loss.”
