Hidey holes and hymenopteran houses

Grass so high
Our vision fails
Of flags off hiding
Who knows where

Holes for hiding
Insects who
Like their grasses
Tall and true

Today we helped dig soil cores for a “pitfall trap” project. The holes were dug near our ENRTF insect collection points and will grant greater insight on how burning prairies can affect insect population composition. The grass was pretty high, though, and we could hardly see the flags that had been placed earlier in the season! Rest assured, the holes were dug.

Also we did emergence traps. We always do emergence traps.

Also Daytona’s pockets are sweaty.
