Learn how to set up a bucket trap for monitoring flying insects. This method allows farmers, gardeners or other pest managers to learn more about insects entering their crops. The method works by filling a bucket with water, which traps insects. Insects are then observed to learn about their movement in and out of fields. This method helps growers like seed potato farmers learn about potential pathogens entering their field. Learn about equipment needed to use this method and tips for troubleshooting.
