Automatic monitoring of stored products insects


Stored-grain pitfall traps are typically used for monitoring several species of stored-grain beetles (Coleoptera) in silos, warehouses and processing plants. They are placed inside the bulk grain near the surface. The cone-shaped device is made of clear plastic and has a removable perforated lid, which allows insects to enter, but not escape. As in the case of the funnel trap, various pheromone lures targeting different species may be used.

Counts as well as environmental parameters and a time stamp are transmitted wirelessly and uploaded to a server. These traps organize their own network (LoRA/WAN) and pass their counts from node to node until they reach the gateway to internet. It is compact, weatherproof.
