Diethylcarbamazine acid citrate, 10 mg./kg. body wt. daily for 10 days, given to cattle by mouth, killed Setaria without ill effect on the host. At lower dosage it was ineffective. After 2 months 987% of the microfilariae were exterminated and only a few were found in 9 out of 32 cattle. No microfilariae were found P.M. during the following year.
