Method Given For Use Of Hopper Poison– Application of grasshopper poison to be effective must be at the right time and in the right places. Equipment used in spraying or dusting should be carefully adjusted, too much material, besides being wasteful, increases the danger of harmful residues; and too little is also wasteful of labor and materials, because it will not prevent crop losses. Most insecticides are poisonous to men and livestock, proper precautions should be used in handling them.
