Entomological Equipment and Books
Some entomologists found that east-facing collecting heads of classical Malaise trap filled in the morning and west-facing collecting heads filled in the afternoon. Therefore, they compromised by having the collecting head face south.
The ez-Migration trap (aka 2-headed Malaise trap) comes with two collecting bottles: one on each end of the trap. Insects intercepted on each side of center panel are collected separately by the ez-Migration trap. This not only makes trap orientation less of a concern, but it also helps identify insect flight direction.
As easy to assemble as our ez-Malaise traps, the ez-Migration trap uses a framework of shock-corded poles to allow quick installation in just a few minutes. Simply hook clips around the poles provided. The ez-Migration trap is nearly freestanding, requiring a minimum of two guy ropes. This feature is lifesaving when deploying traps where there are no trees nearby. It also allows the ez-Migration trap be used as a short-term sampling tool since repositioning the trap is very easy.
