Designed for use with living animals collected using standard sampling techniques. As identification of living animals is possible, specimens can be released back into the wild after identification.
The beating sheet can be laid out or held beneath trees or bushes to collect falling insects `beaten' from foliage. The sweep net features a removable soft mesh net with a foam handle. The 3.5x magnifying pot has a grid on its base for estimating size.
