<p><b>A</b>) The Composite Insect Trap is a passive trap designed to collect as broad a spectrum of insects as possible, utilizing ideas from other, more specialized trap designs in a novel construction. The plastic components of the cone form the collection chamber (B and C). <b>B</b>) The modified plastic container with embedded bottle top will hold the alcohol for killing and storing insects. <b>C</b>) The top of the two-liter bottle will be attached to the mesh fabric of the cone. <b>D</b>) The bamboo rods stabilize the top part of the flight intercept trap. <b>E</b>) The yellow pan trap sits below the flight intercept trap and is filled with soapy water to act simultaneously as a killing and collecting dish.</p
