Does anyone have a source of new bulbs (3 pin bayonet fitting) for the
above traps? The original bulb was type MB/U and worked fine. I gather
that this is no longer manufactured in the UK (and certainly not in
Australia) - the recommended substitute is type MB/FU. This has a
different spectral profile and appears to result in lower catches of
insects as well as the collection of different species.
Any inforamtion (or experiences) appreciated.
