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.
