This is a small portion of the class that got to set up the trap this week! We worked very efficiently when setting up because we were all so excited to take part, and wasted no time to catch some exciting bugs!
Working hard or hardly working? I can say we did both. We had some laughs even though it was cold out and everyone was excited to get see the final product.
The picture on the left is a student with a bug that we found in our tent. In the picture on the right was later that day after set up we already found some bugs that we caught. You can say we’re off to a good start!
These are the hard workers of the day with the beautiful final product of the malaise trap. Us posing with our tools. Can’t wait to receive new discoveries on collecting different bugs in the near future:)
We caught the “Hannah” and “Celina” bug!
Wait! We caught a lot more bugs at the trap… a whole tent full of them!
