This guide is intended to be used by those working in biosecurity, with the aim of empowering the Biosecurity Officer and other government officers in South Georgia to rapidly detect nonnative species of terrestrial invertebrates caught on sticky traps. It is not intended to enable government staff to identify terrestrial invertebrates to species level, for this further assistance will be required from a relevant specialist, but it will help staff to detect and prioritise potential invasive species.
