Bug hunting in areas devoid of insects

Recommended Posts

As stated in my introduction, the San Gabriel Valley is one of the worst places to be an insect enthusiast in. I do not live near any deserts and can't find any darklings, save for stray individuals. Lights usually end up with small dipterans and green lacewings with a few junebugs mixed in, and forests are the worst; they seem like deserts of oak and evergreen, with barely a trace of anything else.



Can any of you share some suggestions? The closest forest is the Angeles National forest, and no natural bodies of water seem to exist nearby.
