Long-lasting Floating Pitfall Trap

William Baumgartner, Parys, Kat, Johnson, Seth J.

AgCenter scientists have invented a new type of floating pitfall trap meant to capture and study insects and spiders associated with aquatic habitats and to determine their distributions within a certain location. The trap has superior performance in areas with increased amounts of aquatic vegetation and is designed for long-term use with minimal need for upkeep or replacement. The trap can be placed in hard-to-sample wet areas, allowing it to trap a wider variety of insects.
