HOW TO GET RID OF THE CATTLE TICK.
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
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
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.
Tli® chief obstacle in the way of
dipping cattle to eradicate the ticks
is the cost of the dipping vats or
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
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
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.
