HOW TO TREAT MANURE WITH INSECTICIDES. In using hele~bore, prepare by adding one-half pound of the powder to every ten gallons of water, then stir and anos it to stand 24 hours. This solution may then be used as needed. It should be sprinkled over the manure at the rate of ten gallons to every 8 bushels (10 4ubic feet). Less amounts are said to be Ineffective. The borax should be applied in a solution using about one and one-half pounds in 10 gallons of water to each lo bushels of manure. Bo0rax in large quantities is harmful to plants, therefore manure treated with borw should be thinly scattered when applied as fertilizer.
