Precautions in Using the Arsenical Dip—Dipping 1 als and How to Make Them. By Tait Butler, E DO NOT believe in hand ap plications to cattle to eradi cate ticks, but success is pos sible by this method. Spraying is little more satisfactory than hand applications. For spraying and hand applications, as already stated, oils or an emulsion of these oils, have usually been employed. We have had no experience in*using the arsen ical dip for hand application and spraying, but have no doubt it will be as effective as the oils or emul sions and that it will be mach less injurious to the cattle. In using the arsenical dip, how ever, there are certain dangers which must be carefully avoided. It is the best dip known, but any material that will kill the ticks can not be harmless and without danger when ~ ~ ,1 *T»1, ~ .4 „______ » “•‘I'1 tj «• UVU . I nt I O U I V V» two sorts, namely: the live stock on the place or the men handling the dip may be poisoned by the arsenic under certain conditions. We sug gest the following precautions or rules: 1. Do not guess at the weight or measures of the materials used. 2. Water all stock before dipping, and watch them while dipping, to prevent them drinking the dip. The use of a little more tar than that gen erally recommended may possibly make the dip so disagreeable as to keep the cattle from drinking it. 3. Avoid the possibility of absorb ing arsenic through cuts or sores on the hands when handling the dip and remember 'flat inhaling the vapors while making the dip may also prove hurtful. 4. Do *ot allow the dip to run off the cattle on to vegetation which may be eaten at some subsequent time by any live stock. Leave the cattle in the dipping pen until the dip ceases to run from them, and then place in a hare lot until dry. Do not per mit the dip to rirti from the cattle and collect in little pools in depres sions in the lot where the cattle may drink it. 5. Do not drive the cattle rapidly or long distances during hot weather within several days after dipping. 0. Protect all vats containing the arsenical dip when not in use, from entrance by any live stock. 7. in disposing of the refuse dip, when it becomes necessary to clean out the vat, put it into a pit several feet deep where there is no danger of direct seepage into wells, springs or streams which supply water for live stock or man. With these precautions and ordi nary good judgment, the arsenical dip is effective and safe. Dipping Tanks. Tli® chief obstacle in the way of dipping cattle to eradicate the ticks is the cost of the dipping vats or tanks. Galvtiaized iron tanks are on the market, but their cost and the cost ol putting them in the ground makes them about as expensive as concrete tanks, and they are, of course, much less durable. Any tank with reason able ca-e will last as long as it is necessary to dip to eradicate the ticks, but if the expense of a tank is to he incurred, it is desirable that it last as long as | ossible in order that it may be used for the dipping of hogs, sheep, cattle* and other live stock to free them of lice and other external parasites, even after ticks are eradicated. Tanks have also been constructed of wood, but, all things considered, the concrete tank is most desirable and of little, if any higher, cost than the others. This is especially true when sand and gravel are near at hand. When neighborhood tanks are built and the labor volunteered, the materials for the vat may cost any where from $35 to $50. About 5 feet of liquid in the vat is necessary, and the sides should be 18 inches to 2 feet higher, to pre vent ioss by overflow and splashing when the animal goes into the tank. These sides may be continued several feet high, for the purpose of prevent ing splashing, by 1-inch plank over lapping, so as to drain the material hack into the vat. The bottom of the vat should be about 18 inches wide and 12 to 15 feet long. At the sur face of the dip the vat may be 2 or 3 feet wide and 2 5 feet long. Thin means that the sides flare outward from the bottom and that there is an incline where the cattle go in and ctyne out. Where the cattle enter the slope should be smooth, prefer ably covered with smooth sheet iron, and finder the surface of the liquid at this end drop off steep, so as to cause the animals to slide In and, falling on their knees, go completely under. As the animal scrambles to his feet he should soon strike a more gentle slope at the other end which is rough, to enable him to walk out of the tank with ease, Into the dripp ing pen. From the dripping pen the dip should drain directly back into the vat. The floor of this dripping pen should be concrete, or very tight-fitting plank. Any reader of The Progressive #rmpr and Gazette who wishes to build a dipping vat is advised to write the IT. S. Department of Agri culture. Washington. I). C., for spec ifications and full instructions for building different kinds of vats.
