For those who want to continue to use a multi-funnel trap similar to the original Lindgren funnel trap, we can offer our Funnel Trap II.
The Funnel Trap II retains a similar profile to the traditional multi-funnel trap. We have re-engineered the funnels to be shorter in order to eliminate the overlap between funnels. Miller et al. have also shown that shorter funnels will capture as many or more beetles as the original design with overlapping funnels. Moreover, shorter length funnels decrease the overall trap weight.
Another feature of the Funnel Trap II is that the larger open end of the funnel allows hanging UHR devices in the center of the trap, exactly how Lindgren envisioned the trap to work. In the original multi-funnel trap, UHRs could not be hung easily in the central channel.
Wet collection cups are also larger to help facilitate bigger insect catches. Currently we do not provide a dry cup option for this trap.
Traps come partially assembled to save on shipping costs. Everything is included for final assembly.
