Popup Rearing & Observation Cages
BioQuip includes parasitoid-resistant popup cages in its extensive line of collapsible cages. The cages are ideal for breeding, rearing, and observing butterflies and many other kinds of insects.
These cages are fully collapsible, lightweight, durable, and fold flat. A variety of sizes to suit many space requirements makes them ideal for both institutional and personal use.
Most cages have five mesh sides to promote healthy air flow, and a clear vinyl window on one side that allows clear viewing into the cage. The 1466AB, 1466CB and 1466PB cages have mesh screen on all sides. A side zippered opening is provided for easy access.
Cages are fabricated from white and/or black Polyester material with a double ‘V’ shaped weave, using 10 micron polyester thread. Black polyester mesh makes it easier to see the contents of the cage (caterpillars, host plants, and/or live insects) than similar white popup cages. Screen mesh size is 36 x 19 holes per inch (684 per square inch). Hole size is an irregular rectangle measuring approximately 600 microns (0.6mm) in length, with a width of 500 microns (0.5mm) at its widest point, and 200 microns (0.2mm) at its narrowest.
These enclosures are washable. Use up to 10% bleach solution to sanitize before reusing if desired.
