    Description

    Bioassays using deer mice showed that R-55 a thiocarbamate derivative applied as 2-and 5-percent coatings was ineffective in reducing consumption of Douglas-fir seed. At 2 percent3 mestranol3 an antifertility chemical3 reduced seed consumption to levels comparable with endrin applied at 0.5 percent without impairing germination.
