Notes

An attached typed note reads, "Cutlines....... KEY PEST IN SCREWWORM PROBLEM---The Gulf Coast ear tick is a key insect pest in the battle against screwworms over much of southern and eastern Texas. A newfound technique for controlling this pest, which involves the use of pesticide-treated ear tags, can play an important role in reducing the number of screwworm cases since screwworm flies lay eggs in wounds made by the ticks. -wfb-".
