templates the assembling of several brig

Director of Experiment Station
Says Animals Are Exceed-
SUGGESTS FORMULA FOR
MIXTURE OF POISONS
Dr. Ball Points Out Necessity
for Prompt Action by Dry
declaring war on tho short-tailed
squirrels that work havoc with the
crops in the dry farming territory, Dr.
E. D. Ball, director of the experiment
station at Logan, lias, issued a circular
giving directions on the best manner
in which to go about extenninpting tho
pests. He calls special attention to the
need of early action and shows . how
theso animals arc a menace to the
proper development of this industry.
J lis formulas arc said to do the work
where tried and if followed as directed
farmers can soon rid the laud of the
little enemies to their crops. What Dr.
Ball has to say on the subject follows:
There was an Immense amount of dam
age done to grain and crops on the dry
farms of this state last year by the
short-tailed squlrrola, or ground doss.
At tho time that the damage was be
ing done, numerous Inquiries came in as
to methods of destroying this pest. At
that season of the year, however, when
food Is abundant, It Is difficult to do
anything with them, and those Interest
ed were advised to wait until spring and
then take up the warfare against these
pests. As soon as the snow 13 off the
ground In tho spring , the squirrels ap
pear and begin to prepare their nests for
the raising of a large brood of young.
At this lime food Is scarce and poison
grain Is readily eaten.
Gives Effective Formula.
There Is no lime to tc lost now. how
ever, and anyone who lias suffered any
loss lu the past from these pests should
proceed at once to prepare the following
mixture and apply It thoroughly:
Strychnine sulphate 1 ounce
Water ?, pints
Cracked wheat or barley J bushel
Dissolve the strychnine In boiling wa
ter, then stir in the grain, stirring thor
oughly until all of the grain has been
equally dampened and all tho water ab
sorbed. Then prepare the following mix
ture: Klour 10 pounds
Sugar 2 pounds
Sprinkle the damp grain with this,
stirring' constantly until each kernel is
coated with the Hour. This will serve
to hide the bitter taste of Iho strych
nine, a sugar-coated pill as It were. This
mixture should be distributed in
teaspoonful or more lu a place in the
holes and runways of the squirrels, great
care being taken to llnd every "live" hole
and sco that the occupants gel their share
of the poisoned grain.
After wailing a' week or more, or un
til after a storm, go over the ground
again and poison each rrcshly opened
hole a second time. Thoroughness In
Ihcsc two applications is the secret of
success. Ono hole missed will mean a
whole brood left to start a colony for the
In some places (he dogs seem to crave
food that Is salted, and the best success
has been obtained by sailing the poison
bnlt. It would bo well to salt a portion
of the mixture and try It along wltlnlie
other and sco which gives the best re
sults. The salt car. be added to the
flour and sugar and stirred In with It or
a small pari of tho mixture can be sepa
rated after tho Hour has been stirred in
and two or three times as much salt
as would bo used in the kitchen stirred
in. Do not taste of this mixture lo
see whether It Is salty enough. You
might llnd out, bul would not live to
tell it lo anyone else.
Expense Is Slight.
The hest limo to apply this mixture
Is in Iho morning of a warm, dry day,
and the grain should be placed on drv
ground. Otherwise tho moisture will
tend lo remove tho sugar coating. Tho
cost of an application of this kind Is
trifling compared wllh tho results ob
tained. Tho fcquirrels can bo killed at
an expense of only a few cents an acre.
Under ordinary conditions, and even If It
is necessary to treat several hundred
acres, the cost will be small as com
pared with the saving of the crops.
Tn conclusion It should ho remembered
that there is little use In using tho
poison except In the early spring, and
any community or Individual that Is plan
ning to light the pests this year by this
method should bo ready at onco and
poison the dogs soon after thev appear
In tho spring. A pair killed at this tlmo
will provent a whole brood of them from
injuring crops at harvest time.
