Hi Mr. Droege,
One of my fellow graduate students forwarded me your recent email about adding beer to traps for bees. I actually use beer pitfall traps to collect cockroaches in the tropics. If any of your contacts are collecting cockroaches I would be very interesting in having the bycatch. I have noticed that most people don't identify their cockroaches in ecological studies (probably because there is no good key for roaches). I am developing a key so I may be able to identify these specimens to genus if anyone is interested. I don't know what else I could offer but I am willing to take requests! Thanks!

Poema del City
I live in the city.
It's a tough life,
often unpleasant, sometimes
downright awful. But it has what
we call its compensations.
To kill a roach, for example,
is to my mind not pleasant
but it does develop one's reflexes.
and that's that.
Sometimes, though, the battered roach
will haul itself onto broken legs and,
wildly waving its bent antennae,
stagger off into the darkness
to warn the others, who live in the shadow
of the great waterfall in their little teepees.
Behind them rise the gleaming brown and blue mass
of the Grand Tetons, topped with white snow
that blushes, come dawn, and glows, come dusk.
Silent gray wisps rise from the smouldering campfires.
