Belgica larvae are collected with soil in the field (just like scooping ice cream). We have to extract the larvae from soil by using this extraction apparatus. Soil sample containing Belgica larvae are spread over the two layers of screens. Hanging above the screens is the light source. Combination of intense light and moderate heat forces the larvae to escape into the pan underneath the screens, while big chunks of soil and debris are trapped and kept above the screens.
