Phasmid infestations reported in American Agriculturist (1887)

While doing some research on phasmids as forest defoliators I discovered these reports from the American Agriculturist on infestations of Diapheromera femorata in 1887.

American Agriculturist, June 1887, pg 219

American Agriculturist, August 1887, pg 302
