I am utilizing an sqlite database during my application. I've this dbhelper class inside a services class like so.

    public class MushroomService {

        private int downloadprogress;
        private int databasesize;

        private DataBaseHelper myDbHelper;
    }

    public MushroomService(Context context)
    {
        myDbHelper = new DataBaseHelper(context);
        downloadprogress = 0;
    }

The help class is part of my application class like so:

public class fungifieldguideapplication extends Application {
    public MushroomService service = new MushroomService(this);
}

During my activity classes I access and this application like a local variable like so:

public class Cat_Genus extends Activity {
    fungifieldguideapplication appState;
    ListView list_Genus;

    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE);
        setContentView(R.layout.cat_genus);

        appState = ((fungifieldguideapplication)this.getApplication());

        Cursor cursor_genuslist = appState.service.GetGenusList(this);
        startManagingCursor(cursor_genuslist);
    }
}

and my service call appears like this:

public Cursor GetGenusList(Context context)
    {
        myDbHelper = new DataBaseHelper(context);
        Cursor cursor;
        try 
        {
            myDbHelper.openDataBase();
            SQLiteDatabase db = myDbHelper.myDataBase;
            cursor = db.query(true, "Mushrooms", GenusListColumns, null, null, "Genus", null, "Genus ASC", null);
        }
        catch(SQLException sqle)
        {
            throw sqle;
        }
        return cursor;
    }

I have added these overrides in to try and eliminate my memory leaks.

@Override
    public void onDestroy() {
        list_Genus.setAdapter(null);
        appState.service.CloseDB();
        super.onDestroy();
    }

    @Override
    public void onPause() {
        appState.service.CloseDB();
        super.onPause();
    }

    @Override
    public void onResume() {
        appState.service.OpenDB();
        super.onResume();
    }

However I can't get my memory leaks to prevent. Could somebody assist me to learn how to rid myself of those memory leaks? These leaks are from the type:
