THE INSECT SURVEY
The Insect Survey is a National Capability hosted by Rothamsted and funded by BBSCRC. The Insect survey is host to a nationwide network of suction and light traps that collect invaluable data on the migration of moths and aphids.
ABOUT THE INSECT SURVEY
The Rothamsted Insect Survey (RIS) has been running two trap networks since 1964. Its long-term data are unique providing information on aphids, larger moths and many other migrating insects to scientists, growers, conservation organisations, individuals and policy makers. As such, the networks represent the most comprehensive standardised long-term data on insects in the World and have a wide range of fundamental and applied uses.
