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 :D If you are looking for a challange at the sewing machine, these trap remains are for you :)
