■ I—SECTION OWE PAGE TWO War On Rats r Still Continues i In June, 1956, the District | Board of Health voted to declare :war on rata, which resulted in Pasquotank, Camden and Chowan ! counties participating in a year i around rodent control program. This program is being sponsored by the respective County Com missioners in cooperation with State and local Health Depart ments. The poison (Warfarin) is secured from the State Board of Health and the mixture is pre pared locally. •To date, 10,000 pounds of pois on have been prepared. It is es timated that if each pound of prepared bait meant death for five rats, a total of 50,000 rats could have been eliminated. The nqmber of premises being treat ed for rodents is steadily increas ing. However,, each person hav ing a rodent problem is asked to cooperate in this worthwhile pro gram. This poison is available at no cost at the Chowan County Health Department and Farm Agent’s office.
