Glick, P.A. 1939. The distribution of insects, spiders, and mites in the air. U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Technical Bulletin 673: 1-150.

The discussion of the airplane collection of insects which is given m the following pages is based on the data collected during the years from August 1926 to October 1931, inclusive. During the 5 years of the work more than 1,007 hours were spent in the exposures of the collecting screens. The actual flying time, including the exposures of the screens, amounted to 1,538 hours, of which 150 hours were flown at night. A total of 1,358 separate flights were made, most of them m Louisiana, but 44 were made in Mexico.
