From 31 March, Lidl (British cheap supermarket, maybe in other European countries?) is going to be selling what they call a wind shelter for ?9. It looks rather like the shelter at the start of this thread.

And from 3 April they are selling fly nets, ?2: "Helps keep flies and mosquitoes (sic) out of your home". It looks as though they are for covering the windows, but might be adaptable for more useful roles.

These are all in their special offers so will only be available for a few days.

See the 1st image in this topic for photo of trap.
A few of the about 200 tabanids trapped yesterday, 20 June 2008, in the "Tent Trap" using my vehicle (bottom right) as the 'bait".
It was actually dangerous to enter the trap; had to go in to select some choice flies; got bitten twiceSad

You mean I should wear clothes on a hot summer's dayShock

My new fly trap. Screen tent is 3.5m x 3.5m at base and about 2.5m high. Placed across the width of this 'road' with the opening facing north (view of the road from the trap entrance) it trapped a few Syrphids, Calliphorids, and Tachinids, plus an assortment of other insects including several hundred tabanids. This is an excellent location for tabanids as the 'road' ends in a huge sphagnum bog and tabanids tend to fly down such openings mostly at low level.
A black bear wandered down this 'road' today but fortunately did not reach the tent

Heavens - you weren't naked were you? !! Shock I know Canada has lots of wilderness, but please remember you are a dipterist, and we have standards Pfft

I must say you make it all look so easy, and you seem to be having a better summer than us in Europe Wink

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
