Grasshopper trapping in progress at Kasese Humanist Primary School, Thanks to Bob Pellissier for supporting us in this project. Its generating us some shillings which is being earned and assisting us in attending to some usual needs of my projects.Grasshoppers season is on and am reaping big from the grasshopper trap that i put up courtesy of Bob Pellissier.

I was supposed to erect the grasshopper trap at either Bizoha or at the Rukoki School but accidentally the season fell in at a time when our school is in 3 weeks holiday and this made me switch putting the grasshopper trap at my residence.

Last night and today am reaping big from the grasshoppers as the catch is promising and this is generating some finances which is giving me a boost in running my projects.

Attached are images of the harvesting process as they unfold. Some of my children plus a number of orphans i care for at my home are wholesomely taking part in the catching activity.

The connection was made for two lights and i do have four drums and 12 iron sheets.

Attached are images shot some few hours at my home.

With Science, we can progress.
