To Extirpate Caterpillars (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

To Extirpate Caterpillars.

Take a new broom, stand with it on the fourth corner of land or acre, and throw crosswise in the other corner in the devil's name, and say: Caterpillars clear out in the devil's name. When doing this, there must be a notch somewhere. Then throw the broom away from the land or acre, as far as you can possibly throw it. Probatum.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
