Collapsible (Pop-up) Insect Enclosure

OUT  OF  STOCK  !

A limited vey number available as part of our care/breeding kits.

Size 14’’ x 14’’ x 24’’ (35cm x 35cm x 61cm);

      • One sight clear for viewing;
      • Other sides fine mesh;
      • Excellent ventilation;
      • Very fine mesh keeps the Red House Spider out;
      • Black color for better visibility;
      • Access via double-zipper
      • Light weight
      • Suitable for small to large sized insects as well as for small reptiles (the enclosure can be placed on the clear panel too which transforms it into a horizontal enclosure.

The insect enclosure or cage is made of strong nylon net with spring-like inner frame to provide rigidity while in use. When not required the cage folds flat and has a retaining elastic. Flat pack size 22cm diameter! The cage when open is accessed from the front via a twin zipper flap which opens to allows easy access to the cage. The twin zipper provides easy access and is very helpful in preventing animals to escape during cleaning. The enclosure can be hung using the easy-carry handles or used as a carrier for transport.  Also excellent for taking out on field trips!

The net is soft enough to prevent wing damage to flying insects, yet strong enough to deal with prickly food like brambles. The zip-flap allows the option to put a potted plant/food plants/foliage in a jar inside the cage. Perfect for breeding/rearing/keeping Orb-weaving Spiders, flower feeding Moths and Butterflies, Praying Mantis, Stick Insects, Katydids, Grasshoppers, Beetles and other insects. It could also be used to house certain reptiles which love the extra ventilation.

Please note that this item will come very tightly folded. Be careful when opening as the strong springs will unfold very quickly, also the PVC panel will be creased due to the way in which it is packaged, but these will reduce in time.
