Insect Adventure, Part 2

Scholars look forward to using the pooter, otherwise known as an aspirator, to collect insects. The video demonstrates how to collect bugs in mesh nets, canvas nets, and in pooters to better study them. The second installment of a three-part field trip to a field by the Field Museum, the video links to other videos in the Brain Scoop Insect playlist.
