Is this an organized field trip? If so, who is the sponsor? I stayed with my family at the Holiday Inn in Ocala in the summer of 1960, when I was about 12 years old. The sign out front was a gold mine for both leps and beetles. My brother & I dug up the flower bed under the sign and got a bunch of Dynastes tityus and Strategus antaeus. Silkmoths were all over the lighted parts of the sign. 50 years later someone asked about collecting D. tityus in Florida on this website. I mentioned the Holiday Inn. He went there and caught some. It's amazing that the place was still entomologically active after 50 years. I think the Holiday Inn is very near the Ocala National Forest. Collecting is allowed in US National Forests. I'm not sure how Holiday Inn management would react to adults digging up their sign. Maybe somebody's kids could get away with it.
