This time of year I get several other visitors around the traps.
It's been a good year for most insects and arachnids.
Harvestman Spiders are everywhere, and many other species of spider,  Ophion sp wasps and Caddis are regulars to the traps.
Rosemary Beetles are now common and a female Great Diving Beetle was found in the trap along with a Common Wasp.

31st Oct 2013 ... Trick or treat ...


.... TREAT ... after 3 nights of absolute zero we get a warmer overcast night and moths.
Two traps running plus 1 illuminated pumpkin trap. LED/ 2 candle power
No Halloween moths ... ie Ghost, Deaths Head, (you get the drift).
However, the pumpkin lights attracted a  few Cloaked Minors during the course of the evening, feeding on a variety of confectionery before departing.
