BioQuip continues to develop and manufacture superior versions of the CDC miniature light trap.  The heavy duty ABS black trap cover is 13” (33 cm) in diameter. A 3-foot polypropylene cord is provided for hanging. The trap body is fabricated from 3-1/2” (9 cm) acrylic tubing, and features stainless steel supports and screen. It has a 4-watt CM-47 incandescent light bulb with an average life of 2,000 hours. An 8-foot (2.4 m) power cord with standard spade tip connectors is supplied. The motor and light draw 320 mAmps.

The trap is equipped with an integrated photo cell.  The photo cell is mounted on the inside of the trap with the sensor sitting flush with the outside of the trap body.  The photo cell is intended to start the trap at dusk and stop the trap at dawn.  The air gate keeps all trapped specimens in the collection bag.  The unit requires a 2860 6 volt DC sealed gel cell battery or power supply (not included).

This trap’s unique design features now include a self-closing, clear film air gate. The air gate prevents escape of collected specimens in the event of power loss.  It also allows for use of a timing device in collecting samples without being on site to start or stop trap operation. There is a minimal increase on motor current draw with this design. The air gate is an extra charge option from other CDC trap manufacturers.

The No-See-Um fine mesh collecting bag with ripstop nylon skirt, 2801B, is supported by a large rubber O-ring, fitted into a groove at the bottom of the acrylic tube. A draw string allows specimens to be contained in the bag safely. (BioQuip 2809C or 2809D aspirators can be inserted into the bag to remove specimens. The bag can then be reattached to the trap.) The collection cup is a 16-ounce polypropylene jar with 32-mesh screen vented bottom and modified lid. An extra plain lid is provided to seal the jar. The trap weighs only 1.5 lbs (.6 kg).
