Excerpt from book: To make the work thorough, water should not be turned into the trench again for twelve or twenty-four hours, In which time the few bugs left among the cress stems will die or find their way to the trough. The trenches can be cleared of bugs in warm weather as frequently as desired, but less danger is done the cress crop if the work is done just after gathering the cress. The same method of disposing of the sowbugs could be used in greenhouses in the winter, but cress grown in the open air could not be exposed in freezing weather, making the remedy inapplicable In cold weather. We have not used water in these trenches deeper than 10 inches, and are not able to say how a larger or more rapidly flowing supply of water would act, nor have we grown winter cress in them, as our water supply is insufficient for that purpose. OTHER REMEDIES. About the only other remedies which we have been able to suggest are the use of a substance, such as sulphate of copper or chlorid of lime, which might be placed in the water to destroy the pest. As the former has already been tested by Messrs. B. Bryan
