1st Time out sugaring along a trail

Sunira bicolorago - Bicolored Sallow

This was my first real sugaring excursion, which took place on Sat. Oct. 13th at Alley Pond Park in Queens, NY. The 1 pint container of sugaring mix was only enough to paint 8X8" patches on about 8 or 9 trees. Moths arrived about 15 minutes after sunset. I couldn't make it back on Sun.
: ( The bait was probably most effective on that night - But, I did return on Mon. evening; to see if baited trees really do retain their attraction up to 3 days. Log entry for Monday's activities will follow this one.
