The safest way to get rid of the Colorado potato beetle is its Assembly. However, it takes a lot of time and effort. To improve the efficiency of Assembly of the beetle, the need to mechanize the process.
What you’ll need:
- a steel rod 10 mm.
The process of making mechanical collection beetle
For mechanization of Assembly of the Colorado potato beetle is necessary to develop a receiver with a screen that will drop the pest, and “snakewater”, knocking him from the bushes.
As a “smahivaet” is used cordless screwdriver. In its cartridge is clamped rod with an attached small sheet of sheet metal or other sufficiently rigid and light sheet material. The receiver is a screen made of tin with a small chute at the bottom. “Sahiwal” in rotation knocks the beetle from the bushes, and those by inertia against the screen fall into a trough.
For convenience, the screen can be mounted on the side of the front wheel of the Bicycle. The screen and the plug 2 are attached stand for fixing a screwdriver. Their length is calculated in such a way as to form the minimum gap between the “smahivaet” and collection. As the wheelbase of the device, you can use an ordinary bike, or to use only its cut from the frame front. To enable rotation “of smahivaet” get on the wheel of the rope, which will press the start button on the handle of the screwdriver.
