The Daily Register-Mall, Galesburg, HI. Monday, October 19, 1953 "t Henry Bureau Sets Drive to Kill Rodents The Henry County Farm Bureau Office In Cambridge has requested farmers and townspeople In the county to participate in an all-out war against rats and mice this fall and winter. Plans were announced by the bureau to furnish cooperntors War farin bait to kill rodents. The bait Is supplied on a non-profit basis through the facilities of the U. S. FJsh and Wildlife Service. The bureau suggested that co­ operntors request the bait the same day In order to kill more rats and mice. The date for this rodent banquet for the entire county Is Friday, Nov. fi. Post Oct. 30 Deadline Orders for Warfarin poison must be placed at the Farm Bureau office In Cambridge by Friday, Oct. 30, the bureau announced. Those who place orders for bait were advised to pick up the material at a resignated distribution center during the Nov. 6 date for the kill. This will be the only time that the bait will be available at a greatly reduced price. The bureau said if no advance orders are placed for the bait, it cannot guarantee there will be enough extra material to fill any last minute orders. Declared Essential Because pests move from place to place, communhy effort Is essential for the best control, the bureau pointed out. Poison, traps, and other methods of destruction must be used in many places to remove the rodents. Clean-up measures, and good maintenance of properties should be applied hand-in-hand with killing measures for best results. • Warfarin is relatively safe and very effective against rats and mice. Good results have been obtained with Warfarin, because it is mixed with freshly-ground corn meal and a small amount of sugar. The bait should be put out in at least two or three places in each building. Set the bait under sturdy boxes, with a hole in each end so only rats and mice can eat it. About five pounds of bait is needed for the average, set of buildings. For further details on bait distribution and how to use Warfarin, cooperators were advised to contact the bureau office.
