Just in Case

The highly damaging Desert Locus threatens the food sources and livelihoods of 19 million people in East Africa.
“Just In Case” is an insect trap that combines the collection of Baote bottles and natural bamboo. It uses three bamboo rods as a frame, cuts the Baote bottles in pairs and overlaps them, and then hangs them with a string.
Use food to attract insects into the bottle, and use the captured insects as food, so that local residents can have a more adequate source of protein intake.
