Those who have occasions to use the Bordeaux mixture or kerosene emulsions or any of the insecticides for destroying insects on trees Will find those substances useful in the pouliry house also. It is npt difficult to get rid of lice and other vermin. Too much is expected from a single application of an insecticide. Because the house has been well drenched is no reason for supposing that all the vermin have been destroyed. To thoroughly clear out lice two or three application should be made kerosene being excellent; but the kerosene emulsion will give good results also. At this season when the days are becoming cool lice will not multiply so rapidly but it is also the best time to destroy them as they cannot so readily escape. Ifwatlare on lice is kept up during trie fall and winter and no strange fowls brought into the flock there will be but little liability of lice securing lodgment in the po...
