First Claim:
Show all 5 claims
I claim:     1. Apparatus for catching insects, comprising an insect-carrying chamber adapted to hold an insect including an opening large enough to allow an insect to pass therethrough, the opening having a periphery lying in one plane such that if the insect-carrying chamber is placed with its opening against a substantially planar surface, a closed space is defined between the surface and the insect carrying chamber, the apparatus including a gravity operated shutter readily movable between a first position where the shutter lies over the opening to define a closed space between the shutter and the insect-carrying chamber, and a second position where the shutter does not obscure the opening to leave it fully open, the apparatus including means to hold the insect-carrying chamber and move it to its in-use position with its opening periphery against a substantially planar surface, the apparatus being arranged such that in said in-use position the shutter is readily movable, by the operation of gravity, from its second position to its first position.
