Optimised dish trap to be used as conventional 'attract and retain' trap

Dish trap: The dish trap performed well in the trap and release experiments in the laboratory (wind tunnel trials at the University of Greenwich). Field results carried out late season in Spain were inconclusive, possibly because they were conducted with falling levels of moth. Pre-full field experiments carried out in 2004 indicated that the castellation trap performed better, so this trap was not used in the 2005 experiments. However, it is hoped to develop this trap to allow it to be used as a conventional “trap and retain” type normally used for monitoring insect activity.
