Lolly w Iowa State College answers: Apply dieldrin at % pound actual chemical per acre. Treat only infested areas. Infestation usually occuss first where sorghum borders small grain fields. Dieldrin has a long-lasting tesidual effect, but if it's used now on grain sorghum it shouldn't present a residue (problem by harvest time.

' Horticulturist Ed Cott of Iowa State College answers: The yellow spots may be caused by one of two lawn diseases common this year—helminthas<porium and curvularia. Extra moisture actually encourages these diseases. As hot dty weather sets in, infections will probably let up.

Extension Agricultural Engineer Dale Hull, Iowa State College, says: Plastic silo covers provide relatively airtight and weather-tight protection for the silage.

But first sweep the bin thoroughly and burn debris. *•! owners, returning from vacation* this time of the year, may find fleas in the house, reports Extension Entomologist Harold Gunderson of Iowa State College. Fleas lay their eggs loose in the hair of dogs and cats. The eggs fall off and hatch into small, slender, active worms that feed on debris on the floor. The life cycle may be completed in 15 to 20 days under favdrable conditions. Gunderson suggests that pet owners treat basements now with 5 percent DDT or 1 percent lindaae. Dogs should be dusted with 5 percent DDT powder and cats with 0.75 percent rotenone powder. The entomologist says to treat your pets every week or 11 days for effective contfrfol. Spraying dandelions now won't accomplish much, says E. P. Sylwester, Iowa State College weed control specialist. Killing the old plants may give you some satisfaction. But spraying won't kill dandelion seeds that are present. They'll germinate by fall, and make any spraying done now look like a waste of money. •Fall is the next good time to get effective spray control of dandelions. Killing them this fall should result in a dandelion- free lawn next spring. !Hmn!!liniHiHH!lMH!»:>!^'H:!I!l!!!l!HmUHi!IU::aHUU!m!U;mKU:H:H!U!U!HIUHUUl!H!H!ilHr:::r:r:U!Ur:r:!^ i Now that Summer has arrived you can enjoy a nice ] comfortable Chair out on the Lawn or Porch.
