How to make a superior pooter

How to make a superior pooter
I tied a section of cord tightly around the mouthpiece end of the pooter tube, fashioning a lanyard loop to fit over my head. This allowed me to use both hands in the field without losing immediate access to the pooter. My tubing was of a length that let me loop it over my neck, sticking the shorter business end through the lanyard. I can carry it securely there or let it dangle from the lanyard when use is imminent.

I often place some moist litter or a soaked ball of tissue in the pooter to keep rove beetles and springtails from dehydrating during several hours of collecting.
