									PLYWOOD Nzi Trap Costs                                Exchange CAN$ to US$                              1.05
Note that use of strapping hinges to make a collapsible trap adds a lot to the cost
The grooved aluminum window framing is also expensive and can be substituted
Costs do not include 14% Canadian federal+provincial tax, mailing charges, etc.

                                                            NOTE that paint brands vary tremendously in
Surfaces are 27 sq ft blue, 18 sq ft black                                      their quality
Two coats of paint are best, cheaper paints will not retain their brilliance after a season outdoors
Black paint on the sunny side of the trap will definitely need retouching after one season
The inner shelf can be just netting, or scrap plywood can be used for a simple frame to add some structural support
Netting needs to be cut a few inches larger than for a cloth trap, adjust dimensions to the exact shape of final trap
