Abstract

A simple aerial trap for collecting drones in congregation areas is described. Large numbers (> 1000) of drones can be collected on days favourable for drone flight. When used with a population containing marked drones the trap permits the assessment of age, race and apiary of origin of the drones in the congregation area. This trap has several  advantages over previous sampling methods.
