Two special features .which may'be added as n9eded are a hydraulic chain saw and a "limb lopper" which enables the department to saw up to 3 inch limbs. Glenn's Studio Photo. Hilton Sinclair Service GQQPYEAR TIRES — SINCLAIR PRQPI.ICTS Chemical way to control the elm disease Chemical protection to control elm bark beetles is one of the best methods to prevent Dutch elm. disease. DDT and msthoxychlor used in spraying and Bidrin used as a systemic injection can coritro! the beetles that carry the disease and can greatly reduce its incidence, says Harold Gunder son, extension entomologist a^ Iowa State University. DDT should be applied in the fall after the leaves have fallen Or mathoxychlor can be appliec in the spring before the trees bud out. In a chemical contro program, a mist blower or a hy draulic sprayer should be used to apply these chemicals. For the mist blower, mix 50 gallons of 25% DDT or 25% methoxy- chlor emulsifiable concentrate with 50 gallons of water. Then, apply 2 to 3 gallons of the spray per. tree' If a hydraulic sprayer is used, eight gallons of the same solution of DDT or methoxychlor should bs mixed with 92 gallons of water. Approximately 15 to 20 gallons of this solution should be applied per tree. DDT is more toxic to wildlife than methoxychlor, but it's less expensive, and longer lasting on the bark, says Gunderson. Sprays should be applied only when trees are barren of leaves, when temperatures are above 32 degrees, and when wind currents are less than five miles psr hour. If property owners don't want to spray, they can have Bidrin applied. It can ba applied only by persons trained and licensed in its use. It has the advantages of no. hazard to wildlife, less influence from bad weather and no requirement of exensive application equipment. However, Bidrin is effective for only 30 days after injection so timing is important, Gunderson adds that no mat ter what chemical control meth od is used, it is important to do an adequate job so the beetles will be killed and Dutch elm disease can be controlled.
