BETTER START NOW ON HOPPER CHECK Washington State can expect another season of grasshopper damage in 1945, unless oacerted. effort is taken by local groups to prevent these severe outbreaks, Warns Laurel G. Smith, Exten- sion entomologist at the State College of Washington. As a result of the 1945 Grass- hopper Survey eondted in East- trn Washington, approximately 250 tons of bait will be needed to cope with the grasshopper menace next year. During 1944, some 1,845 Wash- ington farmers used 210 tons Of bait to control grasshopptrs, ac- cording to Smith's reports. Ap- proximately 20,034 acres of crop land, 20,405 acres of range-land and 2,480 acres of pasture land were baited in this state. Bait was usually spiegel by a traction power bait spread r, or a newly developed power bait spreader that was mounted on the back of a truck bed, This lowr blowr-spreader baited a swath 64 feet wide. It was tried for first time last year to bait range land on the James Richardson ranch at Hooper. Grasshopper control is best ac- complished through baiting the hatching beds s0on afte:r the young hoppers have hatched, Smith said. These hatching beds are usually located where adult grasshoppers congregated last fall. Bait is made of a mixtdre o bran, sawdust and sodium flnosilicate; and the U. S. Department of Agricultu furn- ishes materials free to counties which apply for hem. Farmers should indicate to their county agent in .February or arly March the amount of bait they will need for early sunimer bait- ing in May or June, Smith says, for under wartime conditions, speedy deliveries are almost an impossibility. "Be sure it's not a case of 'too little too late' in this war on the grasshoppers," Smith said. "Loss- es have been enormous, and will continue to he larger unless act- ion is taken in time.
