Wildco Mini-Surber Sampler
Mini-Surber Sampler 500µm Nitex Net
One of the best quantitative samplers for benthic invertebrates, now available in a smaller size. Normally used for macroinvertebrates (worms, insect larvae, etc.), but sometimes also larger specimens (e.g. crayfish, adult insects). Also called a riffle sampler or run sampler, the Mini-Surber is designed for small streams and rivulets where our larger model will not fit, as well as for student use.
The net is genuine Nitex® bolting cloth with taffeta wings. Sample numerous locations at once with your student volunteers and our low-cost unit. For heavy-duty or professional usage, we recommend our full-size Surber Sampler, available through a link to the right.
Other equipment necessary includes wash bottles, sample storage bottles, sieves, counting trays, bug boxes, hand lenses, and forceps.
• Net is 10½” long, frame is 6" x 6" x 6"
• Open base encloses area of 6 x 6” (0.25 square foot)
• Available in EPA-recommended 500 mm
• Stainless steel frame for maximum corrosion resistance
