Araba Bioscan 4-11 March 2022 (Failed)

Data for the period 4-11 March 2022

See the Araba Bioscan Project page for background information on the project and methods.


A mistake led to the trap bottle being filled for this week with water rather than 95% alcohol. The results demonstrate why this is a bad idea … Few insects were collected and those that did end up in the trap were in a very bad condition.
