A simple and inexpensive non-destructive trap to catch insects as they ascend tree boles is described. The trap was tested in a capture–mark–recapture experiment on the Warren root collar weevil, Hylobius warreni Wood. A high percentage (77%) of marked H. warreni were recaptured at least once during a 12-day period and 54% were recaptured more than once, with one weevil recaptured eight times.

Alternative abstract:

Résumé — On trouvera ici la description d’un piège simple, peu coûteux et non destructeur pour capturer des insectes qui grimpent au tronc des arbres. Le piège a été testé au cours d’une expérience de capture-marquage-recapture du charançon de Warren, Hylobius warreni Wood. Un fort pourcentage (77 %) des H. warreni marqués a été recapturé à au moins une reprise durant une période de douze jours, et 54 % plus d’une fois, avec un charançon pris à huit reprises.
