3.6 x 3.6 x 3.6 ft. (110 cm)
Emergence traps are often deployed to estimate population densities of insects. The trapping techniques of many emergence traps, however, involve in frequent visits to remove insects trapped inside. The collecting system of this trap is designed so that it can be left unattended for a long period, and the removal of trapped insects is simple. This product is easy to assemble and is highly portable.
The trap consists of a floorless, closed tent, a collecting head and a collecting bottle. It is fabricated with a white roof and black Polyester no-see-um fabric (96 x 26 mesh/square inch) to allow capture of small insects. A framework of shock-corded, lightweight fiberglass support poles permits quick assembly.
The trap covers a ground surface area about 39 x 39″ (1 meter). When using it as a soil emergence trap, simply place the trap over selected survey spot. Since it is 3.6 ft. (110 cm) tall, it provides enough height to cover small shrubs or potted plants. Use dirt to cover the flaps around the base of each side to keep all insects emerging from soil contained inside. There are two large dome-shaped openings for easy access to the interior. In windy conditions, use tent pegs to stake down loops at the four corners.
Four tent pegs, two support poles 9.8 ft. (300 cm), three 500 ml polyethylene collecting bottles, and Nylon carrying bag are included. Dimensions are 3.6 ft. high by 3.6 ft. across (110 cm). Weight with all accessories is 3.3 lbs. (1.5 kg).
