Collapsible Field Cages
Quickly and easily assembled or dismantled, BioQuip field cages are compact and highly portable. They are very lightweight, and collapse to a small space, making them ideal to pack for field trips or for storing when not in use.
Dark green, UV-resistant polyester netting, 24 x 20 mesh, cage covers allow for good visibility into cage interiors. Velcro closures are stitched to the front side of the covers for easy access and for closing. Covers can be brushed with sucrose or other solution for feeding caged insects, and they may be washed or replaced as needed.
Cage frames are made of aluminum rods and high density Delrin plastic connectors. They are assembled quickly by press fitting rod sections together. No tools are required for cage set-up.
Field cages are available in two sizes, 12 x 12 x 12″ (30.5cm) and 24 x 24 x 24″ (60.9cm). The height of either cage can be doubled by adding a frame extension consisting of four supplemental aluminum rods and connectors. Cages with extension frames are well suited for placement over growing or potted plants. Length of the cage covers allows them to be tucked under the bottom of the frame, or anchored with soil.
Replacement cage covers are available. The 1451DCC white chiffon cage cover is recommended for applications where very small insects, mites or spiders need to be contained inside the cage or excluded from entering.
