Parasite-resistant Rearing and Release Cages

Regular price $12.00 Sale

These parasite resistant cages are a great size for rearing small groups of caterpillars on cut or live food plant, while protecting them from wasps, flies, and the occasional hungry praying mantis.  Also a great tool for releasing butterflies or hatching pupae inside.

A single zipper and no vinyl window make viewing and cleaning very easy.  After years of using pop-up cages like this we've found that the black mesh makes it much easier to see what's inside.  White mesh reflects too much light, making it difficult to see the bugs :)

For cleaning, soak entire tent in a mild bleach solution for about an hour.  We use about 1/2 cup bleach to 5 gallons of water.  Rinse and dry thoroughly before reusing.

Available in two sizes:

  • 12 x 12 x 12 inch cube
  • 13.5 x 13.5 x 24 inch tall
