Some Common Mammals of Western Montana in Relation to Agriculture and Spotted Fever

Description: "Since it is known that spotted fever is communicated from wild animals to human beings by the bite of infected wood ticks and that the two younger stages live almost entirely on small native rodents -- from which they occasionally contract the infection -- it is evident that these tick hosts should be destroyed, at least around ranches. The extensive damage done by the same animals to agricultural interests is another important reason for their destruction. The chief purpose of this publication is to point out the best methods of destroying these native animals." -- p. 6. Among the rodents discussed in the bulletin are squirrels, chipmunks, woodchucks, mice, rats, gophers, rabbits, badgers, and weasels.

Methods of Exterminating the Texas-Fever Tick

Description: "For many years these ticks, which transmit the disease of cattle known as Texas or tick fever, have been a cause of heavy loss and a great handicap to live-stock raising in the southern part of the United States. The progress so far made, however, in the cooperative campaign by this department and State authorities with the object of completely eradicating this pest from the country demonstrates that it is entirely possible to accomplish that result, although a number of years of hard work will be required. It is of great importance for the success of this undertaking that the efforts of the officials should be supplemented by individual work by the farmers. This paper gives simple and practical directions for exterminating the ticks." -- p. 2
