Trial and Error: Experiments in the Field and at Home - Field Book Project

Trial and Error: Experiments in the Field and at Home  - Field Book Project | Field and Laboratory Notes: An array of types, practices, and samples | Scoop.it
By Sonoe Nakasone, Field Book Project Recipe for a pesticide containing kerosene, water, and condensed milk. This page was in between the entries dated October 21 and 22, 1881. Smithsonian Institution Archives, RU007107, box 1, folder 10.

---Hubbard’s recipes spoke to me. The thought of Hubbard mixing up a strange concoction of kerosene and condensed milk, like some mystical apothecary, made me want to test his pesticide recipes. Beyond the childish desire to mix up odd potions, I was curious to know how effective his solution would be on pests I’ve encountered.
