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.
