We have used glycol in the trap heads in
malaise traps without any problem...often add a little soap, but just as
often forget. Pest strips can get pretty smelly and certainly everything
gets covered with most scales in those traps if they aren't tended often.

Dirge in the Woods
A wind sways the pines,
Not a breath of wild air;
Still as the mosses that glow
On the flooring and over the lines
Of the roots here and there.
The pine-tree drops its dead;
They are quiet, as under the sea.
Rushes life in a race,
As the clouds the clouds chase;
And we go,
And we drop like the fruits of the tree,

Speaking of killing agents, has anyone ever used propylene glycol and soapy
water in the jars used on malaise traps? I was concerned about larger
insects stomping around on the little guys before the pest strip killed
