BLOODSUCKING INSECTS TRANSMIT CIIARBON THE HORN-FLY, HORSEFLY AND MOSQUITO CARRY DISEASE FROM INFECTED ANIMAL PROTECT BY SCREENING EOperimeet Deescribed in New Bull. th, Whloh May Be Had Free of Charge On Application. Bleodsacking Insects as Transmit tesm Anthrax or Charbon is the title of the latest publication of the Louisiana State University Expetl meat Station. It is the work of Harry Morris, bacteriologist and assistant veterinarian. This bulletin gives an account of ex periments in the transmission of an thrax or charbon by bloodsucking An sects. The horn-fly, horsefly and mos quito wore used in these experiments. 7'1 results show that these insects are capable of transmitting anthrax bW feeding upon a healthy sanimal at ter biting an infected one. The results of this work should prove the necessity of protecting sanl mal- sick with anthrax from the bit eng of the blood sacking Insects. They also show the necessity of keeping valuable animals in screened build ing during outbreaks of this disease. This bulletin may be obtained free by writing to the Bxperiment Station, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, La. SPRAY WEB WOR~MS WITI" ARSENICAL SOLUTION During 1917 the tall wel worm was unusually abundant in Louisiana, es pecially in the southern portion of the state. In some sections it entirely defoliated pecan, pear, peach, persim mon, willow, and other trees growing both in the woods and in cultivated areas, besides causing injury to va rious field and garden crops. Whether the pest will be as injurious during 1918 remains to be seen, but the worms leers noted in their webs on trees in the vicinity of Baton Rouge early in April and what is apparently the same insect has been reported from elsewhere in the state. Destroy ing these, the first brood of worms to appear this year, means lessening the damage that may be done by la ter broods. They may be killed by cutting the webs from the trees and burning them, or torches may be used to burn the webs a'ld larvae as they occur on the trees, or the worms may be poisoned by spraying the foliage on which they are feeding with an arsenical, such as arsenate of lead.
