Light Traps

Any address for this person so that I can contact him? I also want to try
light traps and don't have the experience nor expertise of doing this. I
have been a diurnal collector for the past few years (butterflies) and will
be starting my moth collection here in the Philippines, as it seems that
this particular insect is less studied here and resources are scarce,
compared with butterflies.

To add, hoping for pointers from other collectors on the how to's, do's and
don'ts of collecting moths.

Just delete me from my address.
