Ostmlly' tsvn to three gallons of water are required. The bran and poison .should be mixed dry. The molasses should be dissolved in a small amount of water and added to the poison mixture. More water can be added ns needed. The linlt mixture should be a crumbly mass, but should nol be sloppy. Usually bait should be scattered wherever worms are observed late ; In Ihe afternoon, since the worms feed by preference al night. During cloudy weather they may feed throughout the day. Atalit 10 pounds of bait to the acre are required.
