Welcome to the NHBS Collections, our favourite books and equipment, chosen and collated by our knowledgeable staff.
This is our collection of essential entomology equipment for naturalists new to catching and identifying this extensive group. Our butterfly nets are perfect for capturing flying insects, while our sweep nets are designed to collect samples in rough vegetation. Beating sheets and trays are great for collecting insects when they are disturbed from vegetation. Pooters, collecting pots and forceps are excellent for organising samples, while magnifying lenses and field guides are invaluable for identifying the often-cryptic members of this group.
