Make your own trap

Home-made traps are simple, cheap and a fun activiity for children. Download the 'make a trap' flyer and video from this page for instructions.

What happens if I find something in my trap?

  • Put trap, with bug still inside, into the freezer for at least 5 minutes - this will immobilise it.

  • Remove the bug from the trap to take a photo.

  • Place the bug back in the trap and contact us via our reporting options.
