Lindgren Funnel Trap – Beetle Trap
The Lindgren Funnel Trap is an effective and user-friendly beetle trap that is used for pest suppression and detection programs, including the detection the presence of invasive insects by Quarantine at ports of entry. It can also be used for indoor trapping of beetles that infest stored grain and other food products.
The Lindgren Funnel Trap consists of series of either 4 or 12 conical shaped plastic funnels that are arranged vertically. The cone shape of the funnels causes the specimens on impact to deflect downwards into the collecting cup. The collection cups come with conical drain screens for dry trapping, or a rubber bung for wet-trapping. Both of the collecting cups are supplied with each trap.
There are no sticky surfaces or chemicals required for the capture.
The Lindgren Funnel trap is lightweight and collapses for easy storage and transportation. Traps are simply hung from branches or from rope strung between trees.
The plastic funnels are black in colour with a diameter of 20cm.
The Lindgren Funnel Trap can be used with either dry trapping or wet trapping options. Most wood boring insects can be successfully dry-trapped. The wet trapping option helps preserve specimens and will minimize escape. For this procedure, fill about 1/3 of the collection cup with a non-toxic liquid (such as antifreeze).
Australian Entomological Supplies Pty Ltd does not supply lures or pheromones. If required they must be purchased locally.
