Last year I investigated how insects were attracted to various sugar water
solutions. During that experiment, it seemed that the weather affected the
number of insects feeding, regardless of the amount of sugar in each solution.
I counted more insects on hot, humid nights than on cooler or less humid
nights. I'm having difficulty finding information on the topic. Can you please
