Although the basis of the mixture is either brown sugar or treacle, or both, reduced to a workable consistency by boiling in beer, there are various recipes for the preparation of the bait. Very often the compound is finished off by the addition of a modicum of rum, and some col- lectors put in a drop or two of the essence of jargonelle pear or ribston pippin. Not infrequently it happens that the moths are not to be tempted by anything in the way of sweets that the collector may prepare. What t...he meteorological or other conditions should be exactly is not clearly understood, but certain it is that on some evenings, ordinary treacle spread on the tree trunks will allure moths by hundreds, while on another night equably favourable so far as one can judge, not a single moth will put in an appearance, even although the most cunningly con- cocted mixture has been put on. When, however, the moths do attend the feast provided for them, the THE ENTOMOLOGIST'S METHODS collector's heart is glad, and he enjoys an hour or two of considerable excitement moving from tree to tree, selecting a specimen here and another there.
