To Control Hog Lice
Clemson College, .lune 15.-Tho
following remedies, any of which will
prove satisfactory, are suggested by
V. L. Starkey, chief of the animal
husbandry division, in answer to In
quiries from fanners on this subject:
l - Crude Oil Treatment.-This ls
tho most widely used treatment for
hog lice. It should bo applied to tho
hogs by pouring it down tho back
and rubbing it over tho entire body,
taking pains to see that tho head and
ears aro well covered. Ono applica
tion of crude oil, provided it is thor
ough, will eliminate hog lice. Of
course, in all cases lt ls necessary to
clean up tho hog houses and sleeping
places and disinfect them with the
2- Creolin.- By taking an ordi
nary coal tar preparation, such as
cieolln, and diluting lt about 1 to
35, you may bo ablo to control hog
lice. As lu the case of crude oil the
application of this material should
be thorough. When a coal tar pre
paration is used it is necessary to re
peat tho treatment in ten days, be
cause the llco are killed, but tho nits
3- Oil from Garages.-Oil from
garages, which has been drained from
tho motors has been used very satis
factorily to control hog lice. How
ever, some of the oil which is ob
tained from garages has a great deal
moro korosono In it than others, and
when this is the case lt sometimes
bl ist ers.
Oils aro also beneficial In laying
dust, which is almost as injurious to
hogs as lice.
