    Overview for Turf-Tec IFS1-G Insect Flotation Sampler

    Analyze insects within a turf area using the Turf-Tec Insect Flotation Sampler. This instrument is easily inserted through the grass and filled with a weak soap and water solution. Insects start to float after 3-5 minutes. Garden specialists, turf managers, and agricultural sectors greatly benefit from this device.

    The Turf-Tec Insect Sampler has a six-inch diameter and a seven-inch height, which covers a wide area to collect samples. Made with a sturdy, 16 gauge steel for years of use, the sampler can be inserted to a depth of four inches. Insects that float to the surface are then identified, counted, and removed to determine population-level estimates. 

    An optional Turf-Tec Macroscope can also be used, together with the Turf-Tec Sampler, for a closer inspection. You can also test a yellowed area of grass to reveal the existence of chinch bugs. This tool is made in the USA and backed by a 1-year limited warranty.
