DescriptionTrap efficacy in capturing economically important forest Coleoptera was measured in field trials comparing the Intercept Panel Trap (INT PT) with the Multi-Funnel Trap. The INT PT was designed to provide a better option for the monitoring of forest Coleoptera. The trap is made of corrugated plastic and is very robust under rigorous field conditions, but still lightweight, easy to carry, weather- and waterproof, and easy to install. The trap disassembles rapidly and stores flat, therefore requiring less storage space than Funnel Traps. The INT PT also costs significantly less than the Funnel Trap.
