METHOD OF WEEVIL CONTEOL
WilUt DiKum Florida Plan Far
Fighting the Meneee U Callow
In iiia column of "Common Sense
Comment" In the Augusta Chronicle,
N. L. Willett U publishing a series
nf article* on boll weevil control, and
llio weevil itwlf. In Ms first article,
In the old days the culture of cot
ton was sadly abased bscanse It In
cluded the growing of other crops,
but this doet not alter cotton'* value.
Mr. George l>. Smith, of the Ag
ricultural Experiment Station of the
University of Florida, with vast ac
cumulated weevil data at hand be
fore him and with thirteen years of
actual weevil field experience gives
to the South a wholly new and a re
volutionary process of weevil control,
fils methods arc totally unllks' all
weevil research work to date. Th* I
cost is not over hi 16 per acre and I
the experiment station say* that If
the Smith rules had been universally
followed in Florida this year outturn
per acre in cotton would have been in
creased over $32.
A Grass Advanss
This totally new line remedy is not
perfect bat It it an advance and Flor ;
r.la believe* it will save ninety per ■
cent of the noicsal crop. The gist o' |
the method may be pat into two sen |
teneea; First remove all square* from i
the cotton plant about June tile Eft)- |
and destroy them; second, follow thi* j
at oner with a thorough application j
cl calcium arsenate, dusted, using *
suitable gun machine. This methpd is |
r.o; enective unicM an winter mna|
an* out of winter quartet*. In Florida j
this It about June the fifth.' This,
work can be done by women and chll- '
■Iron Each worker must be equipped
w'.th a light, well-made cotton cloth
tick, not gunny,* provided with draw
string* for keeping thr mouth cloaod.
At Uie squares and weavilt are picked
from the plants they are placed is
the tack and later taken from thej
field and burned. Not a single wswell
on the plant or in the bag mast as- 1
cape. The work must be supervised,
by an intelligent person. The good )
of the plan cornea only when every I
square is destroyed at this particular j
time. Rquarr pickers must begin at
one side of the field and take row* i
a* they con* and a* soon as possible
after the squares are removed the
application of poison should bo mad*
Roth operations ctn he carried on to
irether successfully by pickiag squares
until late in the afternoon and then
let the poisoning begin over this pick
ed area. Caleiam arsenate muat be
used. Paris Green and London pur 1
pie should never be used on plants.
Animals working in the fields ten
days after poisoning should be raus
alod and operator* should wash face
and hands, sting plenty of soap. A
duster must be uaod that is band pow
er not hors* power and strong enough
to force powder Into the folds of the
bud. The weevils in the field deprived
of squares will attack the terminal
buds in a great host, many of them.
going Inside the folds. This poisoning,
therefore, is directed only at the tar-j
mlnal buds and if we kill the weevils
in the squares and the weevils that
are eating the terminal buds why sr*
hr.ve destroyed the weevi] population
of the' field—hibernation, of conn*, |
haring at this time ail ceased. It iai
useless, therefor* to scatter poison
ov*r the whole field. Pi** to seven1
pounds of calcium arsenate is all that
will be necessary per ae& Operators;
muat walk slowly and take pains to
force the poison into the small bunch!
of tender leaves at the tip of the
plant. Apply when there la no wind
and early morning and lata afternoon.
It is brat that there below on the
plants but dew has nothing to do with
the poisoning under the Smith method
of the wv«vil. The maect la poisoned
only by eating the tender foliag* and
buds to which the poison hat been ap
plied. Work of this nature cannot bo
done well at night but only lata la
the afternoon or early In the morning.
It was found that practically all wee
vils are killed within three days after
the poison la applied.
The Smith method cost it 10 small,I
something tike s dollar and twenty
Avs cents par acre, that It can ha used
on poor land whereas the usual dust
net methods, seven or eight applies
tions, cannot be used except on the
richer lands. The Smith method la
for upland and cotton.
The Terminal Sad
In the past few years ws hare
found that wa ean kill the winter'
weevil by poisoning the terminal bud.
The Smith method, however, waits
until smergeneiea from hibernation
has been completed. It ia vary eacy
to literally fill this terminal bud with
a suitable poison by meant of a good
dust gun. Hits stripping of aquarae
: Is radical and the farmer may be s
| fraid of It. This stripping leaves the
1 cotton plants free to develop and bolls
j without weevil Interference, for the
| tuerondlng aavan or sight weeks.
' When summer migration begins the

The plant, however, remarkably re
acts oa the stripping of lb* squares.
This atrippfcif Is always followed by
an inert ass in tfi* height of the plant
and cloeely followed by the profuse
development of new squares. So pro
nouneed has been this acceleration
and stimulation end fruiting that it
seems probable that even with no
weevils pruuiDt the removal of all
aqua re* early la June would actually

cotton. Mr Smith calculates that If

in Florida this season the cotton crop
