COTTON GROWER MUST OUT
WORK BOLL WEEVILS.
The boll weevil is most active and
most destructive in wet weather. We
understand, of course, that we are not
telling those who have had weevils
any new thing. Yet it is well enough
to call attention to the fact and state
that the coton grower must work in
dustriously at the same time the
weevil does if he expects to win in
Just who should poison is a ques
tion that is yet a little uderstood ac
cording to reports and we state again
that dusting will not pay on land that
will not produce at least half a bale
to the acre without the weevil. Those
who disregard this fact must prepare
for disappointment. More than that
if you are not prepared, mentally or
otherwise, to carry out the rules gov
ernint; the use of calcium arsenate
dust faithfully, better not start. But
with those who should use the dust
and who are prepared to do it, even
though the operation is unpleasant
and perhaps more or less satisfact
ory, poisoning must be done when the
poison itself will be most effective.
Often this calls for work when the
ground is muddy and the plants wet.
During the maximum infestation,
that is, when the boll weevil has
brought out all of his generals, briga
dier generals, lieutenants, corporals
and all of his reserves, poisoning
should be done at intervals of about
four days. Like the Germans,, they
have a wave system of attack and to
meet these attacks it is necessary to
poison about every fourth day for
three successive times. Two or three
applications during favorable weather
may bring the weevil under control,
and some farmers have made the mis
take of supposing that he was out of
business and have proceeded to let a
rainy spell come and go and then to
wake up to the realization that the
weevil had been on the .job and had
gotten in his disastrous work. Dur
ing these rainy spells is exactly the
time, as already indicated, when the

weevil is busiest and when he must
be fought hardest. He is not only
busy, but numbers increase with sup
rising rapidly, and even though the
situation had been under control a
few days earlier, poisoning again .is
necessary, else about as much damage
will' be done as if no poison at all had
been used. The only way to be sure
you are right is to let wet weather in
terfere as little as possible with pois
Of course ,as the United States de
partment of agriculture sets forth in
a recent press service statement,
poisoning can not be done during a
pouring rain, but when the rain lets
up there will be opportunity'to get
back in the field and get the cotton
dusted again. Even though some
poison is lost on account of rain, ex
perience demonstratates that the use
of it under such circumstances is suf
ficiently profitable to justify it. With*
reference to atmospheric conditions,
the government says: "A calm atnmos
phere is the most important thing to
*be considered when applying calcium
arsenate to cotton to control the boll
weevil-more important than dew or
other moisture on the cotton plants.
Success depends in getting all of the
plant surface thoroughly covered with
the fine particles of poison dust. The
dust comes out of the machine in a
cloud and hangs in the air for some
time before settling. If the wind
blows during this time, much of it
never settles where it is wanted but
drifts beyond the cotton to other crops
or is dissipated by the wind. It is not
always possible, of course, to get a
perfectly calm atmosphere at the time
the dusting must be done. Neverthe
less it is urged that application be
made when the atmosphere is stillest."
We feel justified in again warning
our readers that calcium arsenate is
the only known successful boll wyevil
poison, that the only method of using
calcium arsenate that can be recom
mended is in the aust form, and that
the only way to apply this dust is
arsenate dusters. These can be had
with one of the specially built calcium
from $12 on up. Apparently the one
horse duster is becoming increasingly
popular. It is a machine that will
handle two rows at a time with very
satisfactory results and can be had
for around $100. Mr. Coad in one of
his most recent statements said that
the number of over wintered boll
weevils in many districts where ac
curate counts have been made were
as plentiful on June 10 as a month
later under former conditions. With
anything like normal conditions, he

increase in weevil damage and
have an important bearing on
program of calcium arsenate.
It should be recalled that poiso
ing should be started when from 10
to 15 percent. of the squares have
been punctured. Many fields have al
ready been found 'where there are
sufficient weevils to destroy practi
cally all squares as they are formed.
Under such cconditions cotton will
nver bloom unless the weevils are
controlled. For these reasons the
authorities say it will be necessary
to poison earlier this year than ever
before. Under heavy early infesta
tion applications of poison should be
made as soon as the cotton starts
squaring freely, or about the time
four or five squares are found to the
stalk . The regular poisoning sched
ule should be started at that time and
continued along the lines of usual
When infestation reaches a point
where practically all squares are punc
tured, the weevil begins to yearn for
new worlds to conquer and begins his
search. Up to the present time this
movement has occured from late in
July to the last of August, depending
on locality. Migration will probably
start several weeks earlier than that
this year. Therefore, poisoning will
not only be required at an earlier
date than usual but later than usual
on account of weevils from neighbor
ing fields that have not been poison
ed. All of this, as summarized by
the government experiment station,
"Successful weevil control this year
is going to require more effort and
more poison per acre than has ever
been the case in the past. On the
other hand wherever the land is buf
ficicently fertile to justify such an ef
fort, there is much more assurance
of profit from the operation than is
usually the case. The increase in the
cost per acre brought about by the
increased number of applications nec
essary will be far more than compen
sated for by the fact that the weevill
damage without poisoning will be fa
greater than normal, and thus t
margin of profit on the operationi
tremendously . increased. In ot
words, a heavy weevil infestation su
as we have this year means a grea
expenditure per acre for poisoning

means a greater actual net profi
