In Uppland we are also collecting spiders for gut content analyses. The process is similar to that of the suction sampling, only we are using an InsectaZooka and exchangeable collection socks to minimize the cross-contamination risks, as well as cleaning the equipment with bleach. This concludes the sampling period in Uppland for 2020 in late-August.
