Boll Weevil Control race the miles with 20 to hose man. the By O. P. Owens County Agent F. F. Bondy. Research Entomologist Entomologist at the Pee Dee^ Station at Florence, S. C.. recently met -vith- a group of farmers at St. Pauls and discussed Boll. Weevil control, Mr Bondy stated that more Bolt Weevils have lived over winter and are now moving out into the cotton fields than at any time since 1938. According to past history history this just simply means that farmers can expect a very heavy Boll Weevil infestation this year. Mr. Bondy recommended tho following Boll Weevil control program: program: A. Pre-Square Dusting. 8 to 10 pounds per acre of '.1% BHC and 5% DDT. Dusting with this material should be started at once and continued at 5 to 7 clay intervals until three applications have been applied. B. Post-Square Dusting When 107p of squares are punctured, punctured, dust with 8 to 10 pounds per acre at 5 to 7 day intervals until until at least three applications have been made. Use either of the 1 olio olio wing: ( 1 ) 3% BHC and 5% DDT (2) 20% Toxaphene (3) 10% Chlordane ' I n his discussion Mr. Bondy emphasized emphasized that it was absolutely ts- sential to follow a systematic pro- gram in dusting for Boll Weevil control. He told the farmers that if they did not plan to dust systematically he would advise that they not spend their money for dust. Dust applied haphazardly could result in absolutely no benefit whatsoever . However, he pointed out. when the dust is applied systematically-according to a schedule--excellent results can be obtained. SHOO, FUES! THEY WON'T BOTHER WHEN YOU CALL ORKIN!
