    Description

    In laboratory bioassays, coating with endrin reduced consumption of Douglas-fir seed by deer mice. Coating with Arasan did not lower seed consumption, but endrin plus Arasan reduced feeding to levels comparable with endrin alone. Substitution of talc for Arasan produced similar results. Endrin had little effect on seed germination, but addition of Arasan caused a significant reduction. Increasing maounts of latex adhesive used to bind chemicals to the seed decreased the protective effects of endrin treatments.
