Local Predators Set Up Camp in the Trap

IMG_0790

The Malaise Trap at Elmvale District High School is slowly filling up with bugs. On Wednesday, two mantids were taking advantage of the trap to make their search for food easier.  Our class is not sure how many insects that were on their doomed path to the alcohol bottle were consumed by the mantids.  However, the mantids themselves seemed to have themselves been added to our catch volume.
