I wish to put down some homemade insect traps in the backyard to see what kinda critters live back there. If possible I don’t want them to be killed in these traps. I’ve also heard about moth traps? I’d love to hear some methods and suggestions:)
PS: I have two dogs, please nothing toxic, thanks!
Edit 4/21/19 I set up a single trap by digging a hole, putting in a plastic red solo cup, baiting it with some apples, and partially covering it with leaves and sticks. Tomorrow I will update in my journal entry if it worked or not. I will also be trying different methods with different baits and locations. On a warm night I will try the sheet and light for moths. Finally, I may try some methods that mreith suggested. Wish me luck:)
