Estimates of time to sample, process, and analyze Hester–Dendy (HD) versus Hess samples. Estimates are based on a 1 month colonization period for HD samples. Travel time was not accounted for which increases HD sampling time as more trips to each site are required for that method. 1 day = 8 h.

Task Hester–Dendy Hess
Deploying 1 day N/A
Clearing debris 3 days N/A
Collecting 1 day 1 day
Processing ∼2.5 h per sample ∼4 h per sample
Identification ∼2 h per sample ∼3 h per sample
Total time (15 samples) 13.5 days 14.1 days
