Field traps for monitoring insect flights
- 16 Downloads
Three sizes of insect traps not dependent on electricity from power lines are described. Yellow painted baffles are used to attract green peach aphids. A timing mechanism, carriage with containers, and a concentration funnel permit collection of insects for predetermined time periods. A physical count of insects caught in each container gives the time period and magnitude of flight.
