After overcoming some issue with securing the Malaise Trap to our garden beds, students in Mr. Servos’ Environmental Science class got creative with some bags of compost and secured the Malaise trap on Friday. We were happy to see that despite some storms and high winds on the weekend the trap stayed up…well mostly! Some minor adjustments had to happen this morning before we could attach the collection bottle, but we are confident that our trap will now be able to handle the wind. We are pleased to announce that the first insects have been captured successfully! Good luck to all the other participating schools.
