General Product Information
SLAM (Sea, Land, & Air Malaise) Trap floats on water, stands on the ground, and hangs in the sky. Insects are collected from all four sides, which makes wind direction and sun exposure less of a concern when considering trap placement. The trap is also completely self-supported and freestanding.
Malaise traps are typically used for biodiversity surveys because they catch many taxa of flying insects. However, there are several limits to a traditional Malaise trap which is why a SLAM trap can be so helpful.
