|This lightweight soil emergence trap is a small version of our amphibious emergence trap. It has flaps around the base that can be covered with soil to keep the insects inside. Loops at four corners are for the tent pegs (not included) needed in wind.
To boost insect catch, this soil emergence trap is mostly black except the head entrance. A large dome-shaped zipper is in one panel for easy access to interior.
Left to right (click to enlarge): 1) put collecting bottle in top pocket and
