Thread subject: :: Collecting Tachinidae

Posted by Samuel Perry on 07-06-2013 23:44

I've read of a method of collecting involving spraying sunward facing leaves with a mixture of honey, cola, and water. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this, and what mixture they use. Also, what would be a good device to actually do the spraying with? A normal spray bottle with the nozzle bore enlarged with an insect pin? Some sort of fertilizer applicator?
