hi folks,

i'm slowly identifying the moths i catch by baiting them. the light/white
sheet setup is not successful in singapore. is it just too bright here? or
am i using the wrong light / wrong location / wrong anything?

anyway, baiting works great. but so far i've mostly got males with my bait.
have you experienced the same? or is it just coincidence? and the next few
times i'll go out i'll get all females?

i'm using a fruit bait (fruits and sugar, fermented). i had read that males
are more attracted to meaty/fishy bait, and females to fruity bait? 

any ideas/info/references on that?

thanks for any info,

andrea :)
