Title: INSECT CATCHING DEVICE
Abstract:
This insect catching device comprises: - a handle (10), - a head (11) mounted at one end of the handle (10). The head (11) comprises: - a support intended to accept a block of sticky sheets (13) able to hold on to an insect, and - a surround (14), collaborating with the support and having at least one rim (15) intended to cover part of the block of sticky sheets. The rim (15) is able to constitute a predetermined rupture zone (Z1) on the block of sticky sheets (13) so that the sticky sheets can be peeled apart from each other without causing multiple sheets to be removed. The surround (14) defines a cavity (16) opening onto a sticky face (17) of the block of sticky sheets (13) so that the insects present in the cavity are stuck to the sticky sheet.
