Abstract:Using about 360 worms of five species in individual boxes containing the same food on which the worms were feeding when collected, it was found that a poisoned bait made of 1 pound of Paris green and 50 pounds wheat bran gave an average kill of 95% in 24 hours, in comparison with 53.6% kill with a sodium fluosilicate bait of the same proportions. When the sodium fluosilicate was completely dissolved in water before adding to the bran, the mortality was 44.8% in 24 hours.
