Eriosoma Lanigera, or the Wooly Apple-Tree Blight. These insects appropriate for their generic name two Greek words, signifying wool and body, the insect being partially enveloped in a cottony or wool-like secretion, furnished from its own body. The eggs are deposited in crotches or cracks of the branches or bark, often at or near the surface of the ground, or on new shoots springing from the parent tree.
