insect traps

11 July 2008 18:16

 
emptying the traps As a new activity, we have started to catch insects. The insects are an important food source for snow buntings and waders. Generally people state that the amount of insects on Spitsbergen is increasing, but exact data are lacking. The increase is supposed to be a reaction on climate warming. I have decided to start monitoring this change.
In the IPY-project ARTIC WOLVES, my Canadian collegues have developed a modified insect trap, which is deployed in 6 sites all along the Canadian arctic. I have received 5 traps and we are emptying the traps once every other day.
Low flying insects are flying into a small net and have the option to go up or down. At both sides they are trapped in soapy water.
