A site dedicated to a homemade garden Moth Trap and the amazing contents found within. My interest was sparked in 2009 by my then 4 year old son, Louie. He and his sister Keely help me in the mornings, photographing and releasing the contents of this Bedfordshire trap. I hope you enjoy the Blog!

This was the 1st experiment with the trap at a location nr. Peacock's Lake, Broom GPs. I left a small 8w skinner trap out and collected it this morning with Lionel.
I opted for a pure UV tube this time and the results were-
Common Quaker- 1 (photo)
Clouded Drab- 1
Hebrew Character- 1
I was a bit disappointed and may try it again with an upgraded 15w actinic version later in the month.
