Abstract

A window flight trap was altered by replacing a collecting fluid trough with a horizontal cylinder, covered at both ends with clear plastic or screen. Insects falling into the cylinder move toward the light at the ends and are readily-collected. Sample data illustrate the usefulness of the traps for collecting scolytid beetles.

Résumé

Modification du piège a fenêtre dont la partie servant de réceptacle – auparavant un récipient qui contenait du glycol d’éthylène – est maintenant formée d’un cylindre horizontal prolongé à chaque bout par un bocal en verre transparent. Les insectes sont attirés aux bouts par la lumière et donc plus facilement récoltables. Chiffres à l’appui, ce piège capture efficacement les scolytes adultes.
