vfox Posted December 10, 2010 Share Posted December 10, 2010 I'm curious if anyone has ever tried to collect specimens (or breeding colonies!) over the winter months in the colder regions? I made two roach traps and because I work in the city I am going to attempt to collect some samples tomorrow night. I baited the traps with papertowel rubbed with honey and used the inverted top water bottle method. I am going to place one at a dumpster and one near a drainage area that stays moist and warmer than air temps. It's currently 15ºF outside so I'm curious if this will have any results. I don't expect to find any just wandering around out in the open in weather like this so I hope to capture ones that are on their way somewhere warm. Any suggestions to increase my odds? I'm hoping for Periplaneta americana but who knows what may drop by (if anything). This is just an experiment but who knows what may become of it. Wish me luck.
