From 1958 to the present day Jermy-type light-traps operate at every county plant protection and forestry station in Hungary.

The size of a population is different at the various observation posts and the modifying environmental factors are not identical either at all the venues and times of light trapping. Therefore, it is easy to understand that catching the same number of specimens at two different observation posts or at different points of time may stand for varying proportions of the given population. Using relative catch values might solve this problem.
