Sampling ants with pitfall traps: Digging-in effects

Sampling ants with pitfall traps: Digging-in effects Summary Digging-in effects were recorded while using pitfall traps in a study of ants in Southern Australia. These effects consist of high catches immediately after traps are established which subsequently decline. They are most pronounced among ants with nests close, or accessible to traps, but catches of ants from more distant traps may show delayed digging-in effects. It is suggested that the digging-in effect can be reduced by placing pitfalls, inverted, for one week prior to operating them as traps. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Insectes Sociaux Springer Journals

Abstract

Summary Digging-in effects were recorded while using pitfall traps in a study of ants in Southern Australia. These effects consist of high catches immediately after traps are established which subsequently decline. They are most pronounced among ants with nests close, or accessible to traps, but catches of ants from more distant traps may show delayed digging-in effects. It is suggested that the digging-in effect can be reduced by placing pitfalls, inverted, for one week prior to operating them as traps.
