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!

Water Beetle sp.
Not quite as good as last night but ticking over. Most notable was the Water Beetle, quite large at over 20mm long. As yet I don't know which species! The rest of the trappings-
Common Quaker- 8
Hebrew Character- 4
Clouded Drab- 4
Early Grey- 2
N.B Looks like the Beetle is Colymbetes fuscus, a species of diving beetle without a common name.
