The history and purpose of the Pocatello Supply Depot, operated by Division of Wildlife Services, Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife, U.S. Dept. of the Interior, is described. Begun in 1926, the facility manufactures and supplies rodent and predator control materials, which are not available to the general public, to cooperating Federal, State, and private agencies. Approximately 70% of the effort is devoted to rodent control materials, and 30% to predator control. This is done on a non-profit basis, and the Depot’s work has made possible large-scale control programs. Materials produced have led to more effective cooperative control measures.
