Filming a moth trapping session?

I'm lucky enough to be going out to do some moth trapping over the next few weeks, using a static trap with a 125w mercury vapour lamp.
I just wondered if anyone has done something similar, and whether there's any good tips or techniques? Any help greatly appreciated!

Hi Rob. A really good attractant for moths is a mixture of stale beer and molasses. Paint it on a tree trunk and wait. It's often even more effective if you place a white cloth with a UV light shining on it nearby. Good luck. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
