The Malaise Trap

A day that’s good for bugs and insects is when the sun is out. Heres a picture of how the trap’s set up!

It’s set up in Miss Manicom’s back yard because it’s the same ecosystem as our school yard.

We are going back on Friday, October 3 to see the progress of the trap. It’s a 7:00 min. walk but we don’t mind because it’s fun walking there and back.We get to talk to our friends and look at nature. We normally go and visit the trap on Monday and Friday. Both of the classes go, one after each other.

We have a lady bug climbing up into the bottle of ethanol to be caught and given a DNA barcode.

We haven’t caught much but that’s ok.
