Non-sticky Insect Trap
Modern pest management cannot operate without accurate estimates of pest and natural enemies’ population densities or without reliable assessments of plant damage and its effect on yield. Acquiring quantitative information about the agroecosystem is a preliminary phase of any basic or applied work on insect-plant interactions. A vast array of different techniques and tools are used to monitor the population of insects in the fields viz., the hand net or a butterfly net, light trap, pheromone traps, yellow sticky traps and the alike, their use, however, has remained low due to a number of technological, socio-economic and institutional constraints:
The present invention relates to a non-sticky insect trap that can be used for insect monitoring purposes in the field(s). It comprises a barrel shaped structure having insect trapping mechanism.
