THE USE OF RED SQUIILL IN EDIBLE-PRODUCTS DEPARTMelENT

Experiments conducted by the Bureau of Biological Survey having shown that
red squill is an effective rat poison and that it is less dangerous than any other

ments, with the exception of dry saltcellars, may be permitted under the restric-
tions applicable to barium carbonate, as given in Service and Regulatory An-
nouncements for June, 1923, page 55. Use of barium carbonate either alone or in
combination with red squill remains permissible under the same restrictions.
Further information and directions for the use of red squill and barium carbonate
and for the elimination of rats may be found in Farmers' Bulletin No. 1533,
Rat Control.
