Birds and Wild Animals
Do Not Carry Disease
An off.cial bulletin of the Oregon
ate Game Commission fives out the
An investigation by Walter P. Tay
lor, biologist of the Department of
Agriculture, and Harold C. Bryant,
game expert of the California Fish
and Game Commission, with respect
to the possibility of birds and wild
animals being carriers of the hoof-and-mouth
disease germ discloses the
fact that it has so far been impossi
ble to check any specific instance
where wild birds or wild animals
have been carriers of the disease.
It is pointed out that blackbirds
because of their habit of feeding in
the vicinity of domestic stock, and
turkey buzzards when might feed on
the carcasses of stock which have
died from the disease are the most
likely to be carriers of the germ al
though it has been impossible to de
termine this to be a fact.
It is considered impossible for mi
gratory birds and particularly water
fowl to carry the germ although cer
tain species of waterfowl such as
wild geese, brant and cranes feed
extensively in the infected areas of
southern California. These birds
spend a iarge portion of their time
in the water and this in addition to
the fact that fresh air and sunshine
are vital enemies of the disease germ
mnkes it practically impossible for
these birds to become spreaders of
The most important recommenda-
! tion of Profeasors Taylor and Bryant
I is the danger of a wider dissemina
1 tion of the hoof-and-mouth diaeaae
1 would come about if measures were
taken looking towards the extermin
ation of the birds because of the pos
sihllity of their being carriers of
the germ. It is pointed out that it
is impossible to kill all the birds
and that those which were not killed
would be so badly frightened that
they would spread the disease even
more rapidly than if they had been
left alone, in which instance they
would have remained in the local
community. This theory should be
particularly true as affecting black
birds and other local bird residents
of the infected areaa.
So far no case of the hoof-and-nouth
disease has been found north
of Stockton and the disease has been
limited entirely to southern Calif
ornia sections. With the present dis
infecting stations along the state
lines and the measures being taken
by the state of California to restrict
the disease to the preaent infected
areaa the possibility of a further
spread of the disease seems remote.

POTATO BIG CONTROL.
The Colorado potato beetle, or com
mon potato bug, is starting its work
on potato plants in this season of
the year. The easiest time to control
it is to get it early. The insect passes
the winter in the soil as the adult
striped beetle. They appear in the
spring just as the potatoes are com
ing up and feed on the tender leaves
of the plants, and after a few days
begin depositing eggs. The eggs are
laid in masses under the surface of
the leaves. The larvae are slug-like.
deep reddish in color and feed upon
the leaves of the plant. These bugs
are easy to control and immediate
steps should be taken by all farmers
to eradicate them. Spray made by
mixing four pounds of powdered cal-
c.um or lead arsenate to one hundred
gallons of water, will kill them. Paris
green mixed at the rate of three
pounds to one hundred gallons of
water will also control them, but is
iabie to damage, or burn the plant.
Another method is to mix one part
of powdered calcium or lead arsenate
by weight, to nine parts of air-slacked
lime and apply as a dust. This
can be done by putting the mixture
a sack ar.d shaking it over the
