Insects

We offer a complete package - including one of the world's lightest VHF transmitters - allowing you to track and observe a variety of insects.

Track the location, habitat use, home range, and numerous other insect characteristics. Utilize the same concepts used in fish and wildlife tracking, whereby a radio telemetry receiver scans multiple frequencies to detect transmitters attached to your study insects.

 Budgeting: a receiver, antenna and cable costs under $1000. Transmitters run from $147 to $237 each, depending on model.

Transmitter Attachments

Necklace Models

  • Most common attachment for pheasant, prairie and woodland grouse, quail, partridge, and increasingly, turkey.
  • Attaches to the base of the neck riding over the bird's crop.
  • Necklace consists of PVC tubing covering a coated, braided stainless steel flexible cable. The cable fits through two holes, one on each side of the transmitter. A metal sleeve is crimped to the cable on each side to hold the transmitter in place. OR, more popular now, models using a Zip-Ty are also available.
