Prevailing Weather Conditions
Make Time Ideal to Kill Pests
In Morrow County.
Cold weather and deep snow, both
essential to successful rabbit pois
oning, are present now, making the
time ideal for poisoning. Prompt
action is necessary If these condi
tions are to be taken advantage of,
says Charles Smith, Morrow county
The rabbits bunch, usually only
twice each year, when the snow lays
on the ground for several days, and
In late summer when the green feed
has dried up. Because to attempt
poisoning at any other time is a
waste of time, money and effort, It
is important to do the job now.
The rabbit population in Morrow
county was reduced to such an ex
tent last year, that the rabbits are
not very numerous and they may
not be given enough consideration.
A few now means many in the fu
ture. Now that there are so few
in most sections, a little extra ef
fort at this time may mean to prac
tically exterminate them. Cold wea
ther will do Its part by freezing
those that cannot get to feed be
cause of the snow. Those getting
plenty to eat from the haystacks
thrive under present conditions. It
would not be Impossible to kill the
few that remain if proper action is
Poison demonstrations will be put
on at your farm by the county
agent if you will notify him of the
places where the rabbits are bunch
ed. He has strychnine for distri
bution for this work and will assist
in every way possible. Your coop
eration is solicited in taking ad
vantage of existing conditions.
Rabbit poison baits are prepared
by dampening ten pounds of chop
ped hay or leaves with enough wa
ter to cause strychnine to adhere
to it and then dusting with one
ounce of powdered strychnine sul
phate or where they are feeding
on grain hay, dissolve one ounce of
strychnine sulphate in six quarts of
hot water and sprinkle over ten
pounds of wheat or rye heads. The
heads should be cut from the stems.
