This summer I use six traps. More than previous years and maybe too many. Really lot of work with all that pinning and labeling. No time for ID during the summer but nice winter coming with full boxes of interesting flies Grin

Wow - love those malaise traps - especially the ones in the open, flowery (tachinid-friendly) areas Grin Perhaps you should start a new thread where people can put their photos of their Malaise traps? Grin You can swap tips on how best to site them.

Interesting orientation in some of those photos - I was always taught to site them at 90-degrees to an edge or flight-line with the high end pointing towards the light but some of those photos look like they are placed in-line with the forest edge. Is it an optical illusion or do you have better success that way?

Well I'm far from expert with these. I have a very simple method how to put the trap. I just watch some days how the flies are flying and put the malaise there. The high end allways to south and that's it Smile The two malaise at top are good for Asilidae and Syrphidae for exsample. From the middle ones I got Lauxaniidae, Empididae etc. (And Odiniidae !) The lower left corner is the Tachinidae trap Smile

P.S. Maybe a trapping thread would be interesting Smile With Google Earth links tooGrin

Here I am on the roadside waiting for the Tour de France. The caravane had come through and we were waiting for the cyclists themselves, so I took the opportunity to photograph the flies on the Wild Carrot nearby.

Indeed. It's a particularly fine example, and was imported to Europe many years ago from Australia. I believe you have experience of the exceptionally good beer traps available in Australia, so I've got no need to go into detail about how to position it for best effect.
