On Friday last week, we went out to take down our Malaise trap bottle. We saw A LOT of insects in the jar. There were flying and non-flying insects. We even saw a grasshopper! Today, we put on the week 2 bottle and we are now ready for week 2 of catching bugs! We expect beautiful weather in London all week and hope that helps our bug count. -Matthew
