A linear pitfall trap for mole crickets and other soil arthropods

A linear pitfall trap for mole crickets and other soil arthropods

Florida Entomologist 65(3): 376-377

Although adults of Scapteriscus acletus Rehn & Hebard and S. vicinus Scud. can be trapped by electronic calling devices, nymphs require a different technique. A pitfall trap is described that can easily be used for collecting large numbers of nymphs for research from either grassy or bare soil.
