Dimensions: 12 mm pick-up straw
Net Weight: 135 grams
Main Material: Plastic | Polystyrene
Pooter Style: Blowing-type | H-shape
Uses: to collect insects <10mm in size
Precaution: Sometimes you might see more dead insects in the collections. You need to press the yellow silicone bulb bit less to exert less pressure at the tip of the collection straw.
To draw insects into the collecting chamber, most aspirators or pooters are designed to suck air through mouth to create negative pressure. Some insects, such as ants and beetles, can emit particles harmful to the human. There are also situations when insects are to be collected from feces or carcasses or from dusty places. Our HB-type aspirators decrease risk of swallowing hazardous particles by allowing insect collections semi-automatically. This bulb operated aspirator eliminates mouth sucking of insects. For more details, please check video instructions.
