Factors affecting efficacy of pitfall traps for beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae and Tenebrionidae)



Factors affecting efficacy of pitfall traps for beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae and Tenebrionidae)



Journal of Entomological Science 252: 284-293



Studies were carried out in a lucerne field in Montana in 1985-86 and in the laboratory to determine the effects of trap size and 'guides' on catch sizes of carabids and tenebrionids. The numbers of trapped beetles increased with pitfall trap size. Size and configuration of guides affected catch size. Beetles which moved rapidly were more likely to be captured. Non-captures resulted when beetles turned away from traps or pulled out of the trap cones.
