If you're going to leave you bucket trap
unattended, make a number of small holes or slots in the bottom for drainage.
An inverted bucket trap
, on the other hand, typically fails open, allowing steam to escape through the trap.
For this study we developed a bucket trap
for collecting SWD.
Each trap block included one of each pheromone-baited trap: a sticky trap (Pherocon[R] 1C, Trece, Inc., Adair, Oklahoma; trap cost US$4.12), a wire cone trap constructed in the 1990s by a local metal worker (US$150); a Heliothis trap (Scentry Biologicals, Inc., Billings, Montana; US$54.25), and a bucket trap
(Great Lakes IPM, Vestaburg, Michigan; US$11.55) (Fig.
Each bucket trap
consisted of a 25-liter plastic container.
On a small island with limited resources, the costs and availability of bucket trap
supplies and the timing of servicing can be major concerns, and in the initial acoustic detection studies conducted in Curacao (Roda et al.
Weevil captures were compared in the Hook RPW-treated block with weevils captured in a typical mass trapping regime consisting of 2 conventional FBPTs (200 g of dates as food bait in 1 L of water laced with 0.01% Carbofuran 10G plus pheromone (Ferrolure+ 700 mg) in a5 L 4-window bucket trap
) that were located approximately 60 m on either side of the Hook RPW-treated plot.
For the 2003 GRB emergence period, the mean ([+ or -] SEM) GRB trap catch per week was 10.2 [+ or -] 2.6 (84%) for the bucket trap
and 1.9 [+ or -] 0.6 GRB (16%) for wing traps, more than 5-fold difference (Table 2).
To test the hypothesis that overwintered cranberry tipworms emerge as adults during a prolonged period through spring and summer, we designed an emergence trap similar to the bucket traps
evaluated in blueberries (Roubos & Liburd 2010; Hahn & Isaacs 2012; Rhodes et al.
vulneratus, 1-gallon (3.78-liter) bucket traps
were loaded with Ferrolure 700 mg (ChemTica Internacional S.A., Costa Rica), which contains the aggregation pheromone 4-methyl-5-nonanol (ferrugineol).
The pitfall traps used provide comparable data to more recently developed above-ground bucket traps
, although mortality may be somewhat higher in the former (Leasure et al., 2012; Butler et al., 2013).
The zoologists will also lay bucket traps
and distribute leaflets to villagers offering rewards for a Deathworm specimen, which they believe is a giant worm lizard.
