Picture of UV setup

Night Collecting - 2
San Gabriel Canyon, Los Angeles County, California

Here's my ad hoc technique for setting up a UV light quickly. I just drape a white sheet on the side of my car and hang the light in front of it. The back side of Dave Wikle's mercury vapor light setup can be seen in the background. He hangs a UV light on the other side of his stand-alone sheet for extra coverage. Sometimes moths come into the MV light but end up on the UV light on the backside, perhaps because the MV light is too strong for them once they arrive.
