This ez-Malaise trap (Townes style) is fast and easy to set up. Included with this trap is the addition of a framework of shock-corded poles, permitting quick installation. All you need to do is simply hook the clips onto the provided poles. As the trap is so easy to assemble, it can be repositioned at any time which makes it ideal for short-term surveys. 

One advantage of the Malaise trap is that it efficiently catches flying insects such as Hymenoptera and Diptera.  Since it does not, by itself, attract insects, placement of a Malaise trap can significantly affect the number of insects caught.  This Townes-style ez-Malaise trap is for scientists experienced with the hassles of setting up a Malaise trap when the ideal location has no trees to supply support
