State Entomologist of Connecticut To the Director and Board of Control of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station.
I have the honor to transmit, herewith, my twenty-fourth annual report as State Entomologist of Connecticut. As in preceding years, the report covers the activities of the Department of Entomology, as regards both the control and inspection work provided for by Statute, and the various lines of research which after all more properly represent the type of effort for which Agricultural Experiment Stations were established.
W. E. BRITTON, State and Station Entomologist.
