*For early season control use .15 pounds per acre (1 gallon in suf-
ficient water to cover 10 acres). In the States of Texas an.d Missis-
sippi, Dieldrin is recommended for early season boll weevil control
at .1 pound per acre (1 gallon in sufficient water to cover 15 acres).
For mid-season and late season control, use Dieldrin at .15 to .4
pounds per acre (1 gallon in sufficient water to cover 3.75 to 10
acres in compliance with State recommendations).

t For early season control of certain species of cutworms, use 1 gal-
lon in sufficient water to cover 15 acres.


$ To control stink bugs in Arizona (Say's plant bug and brown cot-
ton bug on cotton) it appears necessary to use % gallon per acre.
For contorl of the boll worm, add 1 quart of 25% DDT (contains
2 pounds DDT per gal.) to the recommended dosage for each acre
covered.


ADULT ALFALFA


WEEVIL CONTROL


For control of adult alfalfa weevil, use % gallon per acre (1 gal-
lon will treat 6 acres). For application by ground sprayers:
Use enough water per acre to give uniform coverage. For appli-
cation by aircraft: use a minimum of 2 gallons of diesel oil (or
equivalent) per acre.
Apply in the early spring, when alfalfa is no more than 1 to 2
inches tall.
Do not repeat the application.
Do not allow livestock to graze in treated fields prior to removal
of the first cutting of hay."

water. Apply 2 gallons per adult animal (horses and cattle); pro-
portionately lesser amounts for smaller animals, at from 300 to 400)
pounds pressure. Complete coverage is essential for good control.
For most effective mange treatment apply two sprays one week
apart.
For Lice Control alone, only one spray at low pressure is required.
Very young animals, especially calves under three months of age,
may be injured by the treatment. The treatment of young calves is
advisable, however, to prevent reinfestation of the herd. If young
calves are treated, the amount per animal should be approximately
one quart diluted spray.

FOR CONTROL OF TICKS AND LICE ON BEEF CATTLE AND

roaches as was claimed for it. The product was also found to be ineffective
for the control of "all other insect pests" as was claimed on the label.
An examination of 2 samples of "10% DDT INSECTICIDE NO. 1" showed
it to contain 0.61% and 0.00% respectively of DDT (dichloro diphenyl tri-
chloroethane), whereas the label represented it to contain 10% of DDT. The
product was also not registered under section 4 of the act. The labeling for
the product also failed to contain adequate directions for use, an ingredient
statement that complied with the provisions of the act, and adequate directions
for use. The product was also misbranded in other respects.
An examination of the product "METRO INSECT POWDER NO. 1 CONTAINS
10% DDT PLUS-PYRETHRUM" showed that it failed to contain any DDT
(dichlore diphenyl trichloroethane), no pyrethrins and only a trace of piperonyl
cyclohexenone, whereas it was represented to contain 10% of dichloro diphenyl
trichloroethane, .02% of pyrethrins and .25% of piperonyl cyclohexenone. The
product was also found to be ineffective when used as directed for the control of
the insects named or those implied on the labeling. The product was also not
registered under section 4 of the act.
On February 16, 1955, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of
