Watkins & Doncaster | Field Equipment |  Moth traps - mains operated




All our traps catch moths alive so that they are ideal for survey work, population counts and collecting fertile females for breeding programmes.
We strongly recommend using an earth leakage trip (E7584) or similar device for personal safety while using a mains-operated trap.
