Q-Trap: In-transit detection of bioinvasive insects in intermodal shipping containers.
This sensitive insect sensor will run 24 hours per day, every day that cargo is in transit, attracting insects to a containment surface where they remain for immediate detection and identification when inspectors gain entry to the container. Flying insects will be waiting, ready to be counted on arrival, rather than hidden within the cargo. An increase in the availability, timeliness, accuracy and transparency of pest information is expected to lead to more confidence in the quarantine integrity of cargo and increased detections of invading species, resulting in greater efficiencies in cargo transportation, while reducing risks associated with inadvertent introduction of invasive species.
