Outdoor Cage Mesh Enclosures
Lumite® screen portable field cages are recommended for confining or isolating any given insect population, plants or seeds inside a screen enclosure. Their many applications include boll weevil research, bee culture study, Lepidoptera rearing, and insect pollination control. They are also used as emergence cages for beetles and other bark borers, to capture ground hibernating insects, and for mosquito breeding studies.
Listed in two sizes and six feet high (183 cm), these outdoor cages are fabricated of Lumite® screen in three mesh (thread count) sizes: 18 x 14, 20 x 20, and aphid-resistant 32 x 32. This high-quality material maintains a uniform spread of fibers and lasts for many years. Screening is amber color to allow good sun penetration. Mesh samples are available on written request with SASE.
All bottom edges are reinforced with polypropylene tape and are provided with heavy duty brass grommets every 12″ (30cm) enabling cages to be staked tightly to the ground. All top corners are reinforced with tape for extra strength. Poly monofilament thread is used so that seams will last as long as the fabric. The heavy-duty weather-resistant zippers may be opened from both ends and are attached with black Nylon cloth tape and Nylon fasteners to prevent damage from rotting or rust.
The 6′ x 6′ x 6′ high (183 cm) cages, 1406A, 1406B and 1406C have one 6′ zipper in one end for access. Average weight is 13 pounds.
The 6′ x 12′ x 6′ high (183, 366 cm) cages, 1412A, 1412B and 1412C have two zippers three feet (91cm) apart to form a door in one end. Approximate weight is 18 pounds.
