The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.


I just spent the morning out in the field in a beautiful mature hardwood forest in Quebec, going over sampling protocol with my research team…Malaise traps!  Berlese funnels! Pitfalls! Yellow Pans! Ponds and streams and dip nets!  BUGS!  WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!  It’s rained all day but it’s been so nice to get outside and muck around in the bush!

    I’ve spent a lifetime dodging malaise traps.

    After a weekend spent indoors working instead of outside playing…I can appreciate what a great time you must have had. Not being an entomologist, I can’t say that I know what those contraptions are, but sounds like fun!
