What kind of bait could be used to attract insects?
I have to collect insects for school, and, especially dragonflies are hard to catch, even though there's a ton of them around. Is there anything in the house, maybe sugar or something that will attract stuff like dragonflies, wasps, butterflies, etc?
If this is in the wrong section, I apologize. I never have had to ask something like this.

Insects eat different things research the food for each type. If you use a plastic bottle with the top cut off and inverted into it, you can make a trap. For yellowjackets, some raw meat in the bottle will attract them. You will need to be able to kill the insects maybe a spray. A banana peel should get fruit flies, sugar or syrup will get you houseflies. Dragonflies are predators, they eat waterborne insects do some research. Good luck.

Use an apple or fruit. And some fruit juice maybe too?
