Monday Night

Im thinking of going to elland GPits on Monday night looking for southern wainscot larvae.if any one would like to join me ................................
late May to early June
The reedbeds should be swept after dark for the larvae. I have seen the larvae near the tops of the reeds in large numbers, where they are rather conspicuous, and used to pick off those within reach, and sweep for the more distant ones with a net. The larva pupates in or on the soil, and emerges without much trouble [Tutt]
