A Simple Air-Strike Trap with  a Folding Collecting Container

Cross of unbreakable laser-cut plexiglass (Attention! Do not clean with alcohol!) with a roof and a collecting container. Dimension 40 x 30cm with steel lugs to attach to the collecting container.The whole structure (incl.the collecting container) can be recomposed. 

Attractant and a Fixative Fluid 

It is important to know what I expect from a trap. When it comes to complete research, when I need to find out what´s in the locality, I will use ordinary water of about 2 liters. 

Trap content needs to be removed within a week otherwise there is a risk that smaller material will start rotting. 


We recommend making a mix of wine, water and a few drops of detergent (e.g. a dish washing Jar). Wine serves as attractant in this case.In such a solution together with the Cerambycidae prevail the most Silphidae, Buprestidae, Staphylinidae, Elateridae, Hymenoptera, Dioptera etc.It should be noted that the amount of material obtained using the UV tape is far higher...The material needs to be picked out after about 3-4 days.   

Scarabaeidae & Geotrupidae 

Attractant: along with the excrement it is advisable to add some vinegar and a few drops of detergent (e.g.a dish washing Jar) 

 Carabidae and others  

Here as a fixation serves water with salt and some vinegar with a few drops of detergent (e.g. a washing Jar) 

Location of a raid trap is good: near a wood dump, near a cluster of branches, near a fallen tree or a broken tree, near a forest glade. By other words - in places where increased flight aktivity of insects can be expected.
