Both! A light to attract them, and a net to catch them :P

What kind of insects are you trying to catch?

There are many insects (numbers and species numbers) and no method is good for all:

Night active insects: light is good (espc. UV light source behind a screen)
Flying insects: malaise trap or hand held net etc.
insects on ground/in soil: pitfall traps or eclector traps
water insects: net
insects on trees: net or fumigating insecticides


and many more methods...depends if you want to trap them (automatically) or by hand, where they live and when they are active, what life-cycle they have, how they move, if it should be a high number or just some specimen...

One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.
