HB-type pooters offer an effective way to collect small invertebrate specimens. Unlike traditional pooters, which require the user to suck air to create negative pressure the HB-type uses a hand-held syringe bulb to blow air into the pooter. This reduces risk to the the user when collecting potentially harmful invertebrates such as ants, or when collecting from carcases or faeces. The design allows the insect pick-up pipe to be turned in any direction to allow for easy collection. The HB-type pooter comes with four collection vials and pick-up pipe are available in three different diameters.
