The traps used will be a version of the pitfall trap described in Using Pitfall Traps to Monitor Insect Activity by Youngman et. al. The trap design is a cup firmly planted in a hole dug in the ground, with a second cup of the same rim width resting inside. In the interior cup, a small amount of ethanol will be placed to kill/preserve the specimens collected. Each team will set three traps at their chosen location, with each trap being at least twenty feet apart from the others.
