Re: NANFA-- collecting bugs for fish food ( Attn. university types)

Hello All,

I like to bury jars so that the ground level is flush with the ground.  The
insects fall in and often can't climb up the glass sides of the container.
I try to watch the weather predictions so as to avoid leaving these traps
out in the rain.  This seems to net me a pretty steady supply of terrestrial
insects during the warm months.

The North American Native Fishes Association:  over
20 years of conservation efforts, public education, and
aquarium study of our native fishes.  Check it out at
