"This bulletin gives an account of the recent mouse plague in Humboldt Valley, Nevada. Its object is to acquaint farmers with the dangers from field mice and to describe the best methods of destroying and controlling the animals. ... By October, 1907, a large part of the cultivated lands in this district had been overrun by vast numbers of mice. ... The height of the abundance was reached in November, when it was estimated that on many large ranches there were from 8,000 to 12,000 mice to each acre." [!!].
