What We Caught

On September 22nd Evergreen Elementary grade 5 started a Malaise Trap in our teacher’s backyard. The Malaise Trap hasn’t gotten very many bugs in there because we had a huge rain/thunder storm on Thursday, September 25th.

When we were at our Malaise we saw a wasp and hoped it would go in our Malaise Trap, but sadly it didn’t.  We got lots of other types of bugs, but not as much as we hoped. I thought it was pretty good for our first week.

When our teacher looked inside the bottle we actually caught 2 wasps, 1 lady bug, and a lot of mini bugs and some other bugs too! I think Malaise Trap is really interesting.
