Abstract

A method for collecting flying insects is described, developed for studies on the dispersal of Simuliidae. The apparatus consists of a net mounted on the roof of a motor vehicle, leading to a catch-segregating apparatus within it, such that the catches over any desired distance at speeds up to 48 km/h can be segregated without stopping until 50 catches have been obtained. The volume of air filtered is measured with a counter anemometer mounted in the net mouth. Specimen results for one day are given as an illustration of the efficiency of the method.
