Pitfall Traps

As you play the course this spring, you may notice some pieces of PVC piping in the bluegrass rough.  This piping has a slit cut in the top, and a bottle connected to it, in order to monitor insect activity.  By tracking the movements of insects such as the Annual Bluegrass Weevil, we can more accurately time applications of plant protectants.
With this simple trap, the bugs check in, but don't check out.
