No see ums

11 July 2018

Armin Elbers came with his own experiment, trying to discover a new species group. He is looking for Culicoides emerging from reindeer faeces. Culicoides are biting midges, also known as no see ums. He is prepared a nice bedding from which they could emerge and brought special tents where they will be trapped if they move to the light. It would be a big disappointment for people living her if we got a lot of biting insects due to global warming. So far there are not so many on Svalbard. However for science it would be an interesting dicovery.

Armin shows his methods to Jelle and Marlon.
