Wart Biter (Decticus Verrucivorus)

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“In Germany and Sweden, the peasants use it as a cure for warts. They make this insect bite the warts which they often have on their hands, and the liquid which at the same time flows from the insect’s mouth into the wound causes the warts to dry up and disappear.”
