) t Pl CATTLE GRUBS ARE ] COSTLY MENACE SAYS I ENTOMOLOGIST ROBB [ Laramie . . . Dairymen and cat-I tle producers know how, costly[ grubs can be unless they re con-r troled. A grubby dairy cow often gives from 10 percent to 20 per- cent less milk, says T. R. Robb, en- tomologist with the Wyoming Ag- ricultural Extension Service. "Non-infected cows will gain' as much as 60 additional pounds during one season. The grubby cow is too worried and miserable to eat properly," Robb says. The greatest loss in grub-infested cat- tle shows up at the packing house. Much of the loin has to be trim- med away and cattle hides with grub holes do not make good lea- ther. Packers are obliged to dis- count the price when they find grub-infested cattle Robb recommends three meth- ods of controlling grubs. Using Rotenone, the only insecticide recommended for control, the three formulas are: For power spraying: 7.5 pounds of 5 percent Rotenone powder and I00 gallons of water; or five POunds of 5 percent Rotenone POWder, I0 pounds of wettable Sulphur and I00 gallons of water. Fox~ hand-dusting: One pound of 5 percent Rotenone powder and two pounds of Cream Tripoli earth or phrophyllite. For hand-washing: 12 ounces of 5 percent Rotenone powder, one gallon of water, and 1 or 2 ounces of neutral soap or soap chips. For best results, treatments should begin about 40 days after the first grub bumps appear on the animals back. Treatments should be repeated every 40 days if cattle are infested with grubs, Robb advises. The number of treatments needed will vary with local conditions. The animals should ~be checked regularly to determine the best time for treatment, since the ap- pearance of grubs will vary in dif- ferent parts of the state. Apprentice Fireman Dallas D.
