THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1945 Death Lure for Insects Both green and red lights mean danger—death to insects—and din ner to trout. Submerged red and green neon lights are used to lure flying insects to trout and other fish rearing ponds at the Spearfish, S. D. station of the bureau of fisheries. Insects are attracted to the water's surface by the lights under water, the fish do the catching themselves. Usual method heretofore was hang ing an ordinary drop-cord lamp with reflector, letting insects be lured by the reflection in the water. Lights beneath the surface are better but hatchery officials are not sure that color enhances the catch. D. C. BIXEL, O. D. GORDON BIXEL, O.
