|Since 2006, we have 5 insect traps in the village were we catch insects on moss vegetation. Trap number 4 is moved 10 meters and now we catch loads of mini springtails. Is this because of the new site or is this because of the early season. More questions than answers. Marlon empties every other day the five traps and filters the insects out of the soapy water and puts them in ethanol.|
A picture from an earlier weblog in 2010, showing normal sized and small springtails under the microscope.
