Description: A sealed-edge pyramidal trap to sample total insectemergence from a segment of a small stream has been designed and tested in northeastern Oregon. The trap is approximately 10 by 10 feet at the base, and is constructed of wood, clear plastic, and galvanized screening. It is efficient and readily used, and can yield significant data on seasonal population changes and on the environmental impact of insecticides.
