Ice a result of the cuinpa'.gn conducted in Southern - by S aaley E. Piper. Exper o. .j...g:cui Survey of the L :- Asw.ulture, to exiermi uate ground squirrels and gophers. Extensive experiments were tried to determine the best means of kill ing off these destruc tive little anima's and it was found that most effective res ul's were obtained by using poison ed g;ejn or ripeaing barley heads. The squirre's are exceedingly fond of t'nis greaa herLaje, and eagerly ate t ie poisoned food placed along their runways. Tests were also made with oats, wheat, tarley, raisins, prunes, dried apples and cracked corn, but Oe.se did not prove so successd:!. While grean barlev proved most sui restful for pgisoniug ground squir-: re'.s. ye: the difilculty of procuring a i sufficient supply in all localities led I to dried barley grain being tried.: liie grain was tra ed with strichnine s.ilphate, sacchanae and eggs, and although tiii3 combination proved very destructive to the squirrels, it f ad practically no effect upon doves f-od ouoil. In fa.t, a deliberate c'-temj-t was made to poison these lirds at their watering places, but to bad effect resj);ed. The poison ed graia was also used In fields gra? 1 ed over by sheep and produced no ill effects whatever. j The experiments al3o proved that gophers wtj-e partial to raisins and c'ri'jd apples, and these were success fully u;ed in the poison experiment. It was found t'aa: by sprinkiing the apples or raisins with the strychnine solution, as effective results were . produced as could be obtained by inserting the poisoti into the fruit. The exieriments" for extermination of squirrels also resulted in the death of a e Jiislderable number of rabbits, rtid in o'hcr experiments it was found ; that poisoned oats proved very effect- " 111 Killing- bofi jacks and cotto:i- tails.
