A great way to catch live bugs is to make a simple pitfall trap.
If you want to study your bugs more closely, tip them gently into a glass jar with muslin fixed over the top using a rubber band. You can take a photo of your bugs or draw a picture. Try moving your trap to a different location and see if you catch anything different!
Find out more about different types of bugs in our bug characteristic guide.
