In view of the expense of construction of the standard "West Australian" (WA) bait trap, a new model is described for use in population studies of necrophagous calliphorid flies, particularly Lucilia cuprina (Wiedemann). The new version uses the same principle as the WA bait trap but takes advantage of modular plastic products in its fabrication. Data are presented for calibration of the new trap compared with the standardized WA bait trap.
