Catch Volume  ( How many bugs were found)

  • Today we discovered 62! bugs in our malaise trap in the court yard.

Notes( Trap Disturbances)

  • Due to the warmer weather mid day we discovered a lot more insects in our Malaise trap. We are starting to notice a pattern in our data with regards to the warmer weather and bug activity. When the weather is warmer we collect more bugs and when it is colder outside it seems as if the bugs don’t come outside as much so there is no bug activity or very little if there is any.
