Any tips on small traps I can use on my balcony at my flat in the city? Smile

Is it immoral to catch and kill insects just to take photos, not to collect them?

Can't find the "Collecting and Preserving Insects and Mites" document ... The link I posted is dead and I can't find the PDF on my drives. Perhaps this mentions other traps.

Pitfall traps can also be very usefull to collect flies. For example several species of the genus Geomyza (Opomyzidae) which are hardly collected at all with flight interception and malaise traps are easily collected with pitfall traps. Geomyza apicalis is a good example.

Also light traps, often used by lepidopterists, attract a lot of flies.

A one-man company makes Malaise traps for 50 euros. Admittably the traps are smaller than Bioform's (about 1x1m), but I have never found this to be a problem; the smaller traps produce quite enough material for me. And I think four smaller traps is a better idea than one gigantic one.

I have one cheap 2nd-hand trap I could sell. It is not quite new, a moose ran straight through the trap and scattered the remains (and quite a lot of fur) all over the peat bog where the trap was Grin If you are looking for a challange at the sewing machine, these trap remains are for you Smile

Nope. 26.61 is the Ordering Code. The price is EUR 39,- (see price list in the DOWNLOAD section of the website)

Detailed instructions for making a Malaise trap can be found here:
Townes, H. 1962 Design for a Malaise trap. Proc. Ent. Soc. Wash. 64(4):253-262
and
Townes, H. 1972. A light-weight Malaise trap. Ent. News 83: 239-247.
The 2nd paper describes a trap that is lighte rand easier to make.

I'd always recommend buying your first Malaise trap - but maybe I am just lazy? Wink They can be quite fiddly to make and it is always a good idea to have one in front of you to copy. Smile The fabric tent is relatively straightforward to sew together but a good bottle attachment might involve some metalwork to make it sturdy ... though I'm not sure anything could withstand Kahis's Moose! Shock The worst I ever had was a small deer that tore the tent to shreds ... but luckily it was the end of the season and the fabric had started to rot anyway Smile
