Abstract: K. G. Monks has recently shown that the element $P^{s}_{t}$ has nilpotence height $2[\frac{s}{t}] + 2$ in the mod $2$ Steenrod algebra. Here the method and result are generalized to show that for an odd prime $p$ the element $P^{s}_{t}$ has nilpotence height $p[\frac{s}{t}] + p$ in the mod $p $ Steenrod algebra.
