Modification of a Leaf Blower/Vac for Sampling of Arthropods

Alton N. Sparks, Jr. and John W. Norman, Jr.


Modifications of a commercially available leaf blower/vac for sampling of arthropods is presented. The sampler was designed to blow air across the row into a vacuum attachment with a net for collection of arthropods. This sampling method was compared with sweep net and beat net sampling in cotton field studies and effectively collected a wide variety of arthropods.
