The Bug Bait (虫寄せせんべい?, lit.: "Insect Gathering Wafer") is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. The Bug Bait is a vanilla wafer. It is found inside a Fiery Bulblax in the first sublevel of the Submerged Castle. Retrieving the treasure can be quite difficult because the Bulblax and multiple Fiery Blowhogs must be fought with only Blue Pikmin.
Collecting the Treasure
This treasure is within a sleeping Fiery Bulblax in the Submerged Castle. The main problem is that only blues can enter this cave, and Bulbmin are only found on the later floors. In order to get the treasure, you need to lure the Bulblax into the water to extinguish it. Fighting it head on can be tricky, but with a spray or some knowledge on how to predict the Grub Dog's actions, it can be taken down. Sometimes, the Bulblax will be in the water from the start, drastically shortening the time taken to fight the beast. Using a leader to beat the beast to death is not recommended, as the Waterwraith may spawn if it takes too long, and this small and cramped sublevel is not an ideal place to deal with the creature.
