The yellow catch indicator is seen when the trap is set off. Pull the trap out of the ground by the spring end, do not pull out by the black tube. Pull back on the black tube until you hear a click to remove the pest from the trap. If the yellow indicator does not light up, you may have a dead or dying insect in your trap.
This is a good indication that the insect is dead and should be disposed of in a proper manner. Insects in the Trap When you are ready to catch your insect, place it on a piece of paper or paper towel. Place the paper on top of a clean, dry, flat surface.
The paper should not be wet or damp, as this will make it harder for the insects to be caught. You can also use a paper bag to trap insects, but this is not recommended as it can be difficult to clean the bag after each use. Once you have caught your bug, take it to a safe place and dispose of it properly.
