Post Grub Barrier for a Square Tote
This link http://blacksoldierflyblog.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=215 shows a barrier for a Round bucket.

Here's one that works on a Square tote.

Thanks PeteB. Would you say the important feature here is the multiple downward facing sections (flanges) which would cause the larva to lose their grip?

BW, it's rather difficult to observe what happens down there ;). What I do see is the three inner 'flanges' get brown and grubby, and the outer one stays white. They obviously never get that far. I guess it's the same with Velcro, they've got no surface tension to work with, and gravity does the rest.

Great idea, how is it performing so far? Have you seen any escapees since it is installed?

It works very well - no escapes. Gravity Sucks :)

I've been playing with this new arrangement, and so far it's working well. :)
It's much easier to fit, with a large surface to hold the glue.

Looks much the same - is it just a little larger?

Oops never mind. I think I see that you've turned it 90° so that your attaching with the much wider back of the cable trunking?

Hi Pete, Is there any difference in terms of performance between those 2 set ups?
