30 Days Wild 2021 – Day Twenty-two.


104131707_3891626307576139_3708370680052442488_oDay 22: This week is National Insect Week, an initiative by the Royal Entomological Society, to highlight the conservation of insects. To celebrate this event, I decided to do a pitfall trap in the yarden. Here’s what I found!

On lifting out the cup from the pitfall I discovered many springtails, no longer considered insects but hexapods, and one scared woodlouse which is a crustacean.  

Have you tried a pitfall trap yourself? If so what species did you discover?

Thanks for reading, and stay wild!
