Trap To Catch Worms

Bee Keeping: Mysteries Of Bee-keeping Explained

You may now raise it, but you may still catch the worms by laying under

the bees a narrow shingle, a stick of elder split in two lengthwise,

and the pith scraped out, or anything else that will afford them

protection from the bees, and where they may spin their cocoons. These

should be removed every few days, and the worms destroyed, and the trap

put back. Do not neglect it till they change to the moth, and you have

nothing but to remove the empty cocoon.
