Bug Vac or Super Pooter

Bug Vac or Super Pooter
Size: about 1.5 m
Homemade mouthpiece after use showing a few larger debris pieces caught by the 1/2-inch-grid hardware cloth leaf screen. The orange plastic "teeth" are actually small electric wire nuts held in place by screws through the reinforced bowl rim. Their purpose is two-fold: They keep the mouthpiece from sucking down tight on a surface, resulting in no airflow, and they serve as rake teeth to stir up debris that might have tiny arthropods living in or under it.
