A photographic technique for producing high-quality insect tags for mark/release/recapture studies



A photographic technique for producing high-quality insect tags for mark/release/recapture studies



Entomological News 993: 167-171



A method for producing small (1.0- to 1.5-mm diameter) plastic tags for marking insects is described. The tags, made from high contrast photographic film, are light-weight and provide a means for individually marking several thousand insects without reliance on complex colour-coding or other schemes. The tags may be produced with a minimum of equipment, and provide a readily available solution to mark-release-recapture studies of insects.
