As ordinary houseflies are the most dangerous pest
with which we have to contend during the warm months,
and as it has been demonstrated in many places (partial
ly so in St. Johns, 1916) that flies can be easily extermin
ated by diligence on part of householders.
Also it being known that the most effective way to
prevent flies is to destroy their breeding places, which are,
unclean corrals, closets, stables and other places of filth.
We therefore ask that each and every landlord and
tenr.nt in Apache county, remove all filth from corrals and
out houses by April 5th next, and render closets fly-proof,
and keep vessel containing lime or ashes of dirt, inside the
closet to use. An officer will be designated to instruct and
assist in carrying out requests by the County Board of
Health. HEBER JARVIS, Chairman,
