New Pest Monitoring Programme at The Rifles.

4th Jul 2017

New sticky insect traps, or blunder traps, have been placed at various points around the building. We'll check these every 3 months to see if there's anything that may cause damage to the collections, for example clothes moth or woolly bear (carpet beetle larvae). Any information we gather will help us further improve the care of our collections.
