Insects and Weather

On September 22 we went to Miss Manacom’s back yard to see our Malaise Trap. We recorded the daily high temperature, cloud cover and catch volume.

These records are important because then it will give us better understandings of how the weather affects the insects. For example: if it was snowing then not many bugs would be out. In that case, if it is super sunny it will be good bug catching weather.

There are two bottles of ethanol; the first one is for week one and the second one is for week two so we can see if there is a difference of the bugs.
