The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 14



When hop plants are troubled by these fleas it is often very useful to put soot over and round the plants, and after a day or two to prong hoe the soil close to them and pulverise it as much as possible. They jump off the plants when disturbed and take refuge in the clods. In cases where the injury is very great, tarred boards or sacking should be held near the ground under the plants and the poles tapped with a stick, so that the fleas jump into and are retained by the tar.
