WIlUVILS IN cohn.
C'IrmMon K* tension Work?Article
The weevils lay their eggs In th ?
seed where the young larvae eat the
sturch. When full grown they change
to the dormant or pupal stage, from
which the full grown weevil emerges
and works Its way out to lay the
e?gs for another generation. The en?
tire time for egg laying to the de
xelopment of the full grown weevil,
requires about six weeks.
The first stop In controlling corn
weevils la to select the seed corn In
the field, paying special attention to
the ears that are well covered by the
shuck ani if possible that hang with
th? pointed end downward. This Is
an Important precaution, although
not sufficient to fully protect tho corn
In the cribs. ,
Treatment of Corn In Cribs.
Carbon bisulphide is a colorlesH
liquid with a strong disagreeable i
oder. It vaporises rapidly at ordl- 1
nary temperatures. Is highly lnflam
able, and when Ignited is explosive.
It is. therefore, Important to keep
away fire of any kind, whether flame,
stove, lantern, embers, lighted pipe
or cigar. This chemical is very
widely used at present, and when the
above precautions are observed there
are no danegrs from accident. It
may be purchased at any drug store
or chemical wholesale house, ranging
from ten to twenty-five cents per
pound. The brand that has given the
best satisfaction In our experimental
work Is named Fuma and costs about
ten cents a pound. The liquid and
vapor coming from it are heavier
than air and will sink, therefore the
application Is made at the top of
the crib and not from below. Fu?
migation should be done on warm
days as volatilization Is slower in cold
weather and consequently less ef?
Assuming that the crib Is moder?
ately tight. It Is used at the rate of
3 pounds to 10 bushels of grain, or
approximately 1,000 cubic feet of
space, the latter being for an empty
crib. It should be repeated in Isn
It may be distributed In several
shallow vessels, but the simplest way
is to sprinkle It over the top like
water and n* blankets are available
the surface of the corn should be
covered. Where the bin is open, the
best possible thing to do Is to make
It tight. In case of log cribs, this mny
be accomplished by means of canva
tacked over the walls.
Where only a small quantity of
grain Is to be fumigated, such as seed,
corn or cowpeas used for seed. It
may be accomplished by pouring it in
a coal oil or molases barrel. Such a
barrel will accommodate about three
bushels. Three to five ounces of car
l">n bisulphide Is poured over the
surface and the barrel tightly closed
for twenty-four to thlrty-slx hours
The top of tho barrel may be made
perfectly tight by covering It with
several burlap baga weighted down
with boards. A permanent covering
for this purpose may be made by j
heavily painting a piece of canvas of
proper size which Is then laid over
the opening and a barrel hoop drop- j
ped over the top to held it firmly
Carbon bisulphide is not poisonous
nor caustic. It drives the air from
the space to which it Is applied and
causes suffocation. When overcome
by this gas in a building, the symp?
toms consist of a dry feeling of the
skin and a streaked headache, accom?
panied by dizziness. This will pass
off immediately after a person reach?
es the fresh air. It is not advisable
that people affected with heart trou?
ble handle this gas to any great ex?
Among other methods lor controll?
ing weevils, llmo and salt are yome
times recommended. These materials
are not nearly as effective as fumi?
gation, while the decrease in the pala- |
tal illty of the corn, where lime is em- 1
ployed, makes the use of this material
The use of each does not decrease !
the palatability but, in order that I
it may do any good at all It must be
used at a heavy rate. A fair appli
; cation would consist of 75 to 100
j pounds of salt to 300 bushels of corn.
; Better permeation is secured when
applying it in solution at the rate of
2 pounds salt to one gallon of water.
It must be applied when the corn is
put In the crib.
