A New Weapon!!.....................
As the mothing season starts to peak, I thought I'd well and truly open Pandora's Box. So I decided to hook up a twin light rig and tie-wrap it to the inside of our octagonal gazebo. I decided to use a pair of T12 40w Blacklight Blue tubes (BLBs) and just simply waited for it to get dark. With this I also put out my 15w twin Actinic/UV Skinner Trap.
The results were staggering with the 1st attempt, recording in excess of 65 species before I gave up recording! I used this system over the weekend and now have a total of 162 Macro and 73 Micro species for the year!
Viewed from my windowGhost Moth has just turned up in the trap. Make that 163 Macros!!
