This article details a trap network that was operated by the Tasmanian state agricultural agency, currently known as the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE), for several decades. It was established to forecast outbreaks of Persectania ewingii (Westwood), southern armyworm, but many other species were also enumerated. While the armyworm forecasts are outlined elsewhere (Hill 2013), this article summarises the datasets available from the trap network that may be of use to researchers for various purposes.
