Sampling comments: "Pitfall trapping along a transect was conducted along a 100m x 2m belt transect. Each transect was divided into 20 sections, each 5m long... Traps were made in the middle of each 5m that have been measured. Traps were left for 24 hours. Ants were collected the next day... This process was repeated for three days. Four different baits (corned beef, tuna in soil, sweet/candy and control) were used"
