One Spray a Year to Control Lice on Cattle Is Predicted FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Dec. —Arkansas farmers may find It possible before too long to control lice on dairy and beef cattle by making only one spray application annually, early in the winter. The prediction was made by Dr. J. E/. Lancaster, Jr., who Joined the Entomology Department of the University of Arkansas' Agricultural Experiment Station last July. It Is based on research work Dr. Lancaster carried on from 1947 to 1950 while at Cornell University. A report of that work has Just been published in the journal of Economic'-Entomology. Cattle lice sap the strength of I both dnSry and beef cattle, cutting down milk production In the former and rate of gain tn the latter, Dr. Lancaster points out. At present, many farmers are controlling lice on their cows with two spray applications a year of such Inscc- tides as methoxychlor, DDT, or lindane. However, beef producers sometimes find it Impractical to round up nnri spray their cattle twice. -Furthermore, timing of the second application Is very Important, according to Dr. Lancaster. Unless it is made nt just the proper time, from 11 days to two weeks nfter the first treatment, control Is ineffective. Therefore, an insecticide that would give control with ; only one application would be a i real improvement. j In his work at Cornell, Dr. Lan- I caster sprayed a .number of dair> herds during the winter using different insecticides. Some, were applied twice, vilile others were applied onij:.once. He then examinee the cows-at frequent intervals up until early'May. One of the materials, chlordnne, gave excellent sea,' 7. sonal control with one application made at the beginning of the win ter at A strength of one-fourth o 1 per cent. He observed no itl effect from the chlordane spray, or froj any of the other materials-used. Dr. Lancaster is now beginning test of one"-application control un der Arkansas conditions. He.poinU out that while the species of lie are probably the same here as 1 New York State, It Is possible tha climatic or other conditions ma affect results from the trcatmen This study will be carried out 1 cooperation, with livestock farmer in Benton County, mainly on dftlr attic but also with beef cattle. A .same time, Dr. Lancaster tanning a thorough study of th ouse problem in the state, incluc ng species involved and the stag. L their life history and develop icnt.

Keep both the tension on the thread and the pressure on the feed light.
