Lesson Five: Gnomes & Doxies Study Guide

Chapter 6

Gnomes are XX: Harmless. To remove the Gnomes, the Jarvey & the Spin & Toss are methods of use. The Jarvey is the predator & will hunt Gnomes. The Spin & Toss is used by holding the Gnomes' legs & spinning them around. After you have spun them, throw them far away. Gnomes defend themselves by biting. Doxies are XX: Harmless. They are small, can fly, & have an extra pair of arms & legs. They can shoot venom into the bite & if bitten, the cure is to take the Antidote to Common Poisons. Doxies can lay up to 500 eggs & the eggs can be useful for potion ingredients. To clear your home, use Doxycide.


A fever & fatigue
Tenderness around the bite & limpness of the effected area

Allergic Reactions

Fun Facts
Gnomes look like small potatoes; brown & only one foot tall.
Gnomes live near wizarding homes to dig in gardens.
Many would rather use the Spin & Toss method, as using the Jarvey causes gore.
Doxies are also called the biting fairies & have two rows of very sharp teeth.
