DISINFECTING DOES NOT KILL
Painting Roosts and Dropping Boards
of No Value in Destroying
Chicken Parasites.
(Prepared by the I'nlled Slates I>epart

Then- him- been iiiany advocates of

•the poultry- lonisr- with various oil mix
tures, the Idea being that the va|>ors
or gases arising fruui these jiolnts

[fowls and kill the Her*. This method
Jias lteen given a very extensive trial

the following ingredients: Phenols, tar
Oils, hydrocarbon oils, creosote oil.
carbon dlaulphJd, wood-tar distillate,
benzol. nitrobenzene, naphthalene, an
thracene oil, and pyridine.
In these ex|s-riments U)e roosts and
dropping boartls or the whole Interior
of the house were thoroughly painted
or sprayed Just before the fowls went
to roost, and all doors, windows, and
ventilators were closed during the first
night. Five badly infested fowls were
used In each test, and at the end of
jne week examination was made for
living lice. Although an occasional
dead louse was found tin the dropping
boards. In no case was the treatment
of any practical value. Since many
of these preparations were found to
be effective when used as fumigants
in small boxes, it Is apparent that the
Ineffectiveness of house treatment is
dut- to the fact that the fumes do not
become concentrated enough to kill the
lice. Tests were also made with lime
sulphur applied la the same way; this
also was found to he of no value.
GIVE CHICKENS FREE RANGE
Qrowing Fowls Are Enabled to Obtain
Quantities of Bugs, Worms,
Green Feed, Etc.
When the garden crops have reached
maturity or are far enough developed
to suffer little damage from chickens
the thick should he given free range.
There are times In lute summer and j
early fall when the benefit received
by the poultry will exceed the slight
injury some garden products may In
cur.
Free range enables growing chick
ens to obtain quantities of green feed,
bugs, worms, and other things. The
chickens therefore require less grain
and are less liable to sickness <>r dis
ease. Exercise and ability to range
for even a few hours u du.v Is bene
ficial to it (lock i hat has been kept
lu confinement during spring and early
cummer.
CONTROL OF LICE AND MITES
Oust Bath Will Aid Materially, but
Should Not Be Depended
Upon Entirely.
While it Is well to provide a good
dust hath for chickens, it cunnot lie
depended u|miii for louse and mite
control, say specialists of the United •
States Department of Agriculture. It
la far lietter to eradicate the pests
completely. The main difficulty about
depending upon dust Imtlis Is that
some fowls seldom dust themselves,
and those which dust freely never
completely free themselves of lee. The
dust hath should lie kept under rover
and msy consist of fine road dust with
coal ashes added
