Sanders et al. (2012)

Truck trapping is a means of catching insects, including Culicoides biting midges using a vehicle-mounted net that is driven along a defined ‘run’ of track. Truck trapping is effective throughout the day and is not affected by some of the trapping bias that light, suction and baited traps are limited by. This method sheet describes its safe use in the field environment.
