Rainy Day Malaise Trap

Today, the weather was very rainy, windy and cold.  The trap was not standing as straight up as it used to be when it was set up (probably because of the wind).  The catch volume on the ethanol bottle was just under 4.5, but it was hard to tell because the bottle was moving and the liquid was sloshing around.  It’s a possibility that less bugs were caught because of the weather.  Overall, it seems the weather had an impact on it. -Leah, Breanna and Katelyn
