Pop-up Cylindrical Netting Cage

 

An innovative cage, with access through the top which zips around the perimeter. Compacts completely flat for storage, but springs up for use when wanted, requiring no supports. Ribbon handles allow carrying or suspension when required. Approx 35cm diameter and 45cm high.

 

Suitable for rearing larger larvae, or smaller creatures in some quantity. Also suitable as an emerging cage with pupae lying on the bottom, or suspended from the sides. Pupae should be on a tray of suitable compost to retain humidity, not simply laid on the cage bottom. Sticks are needed for emerging adults to climb but the netting sides already provide superb foothold. Makes a good pairing cage for Hawkmoths and Silkmoths.

 

With the zip opening top, the cage can be inverted over potted foodplant, or over a growing branch, like a sleeve, but it is vital to ensure that the zip is tightly closed to keep the insects in and predators out.
