At 63-cm tall, BugDorm-4E2260 insect cage is suitable for small potted plants. It has very fine Nylon netting (150 x 150 mesh) all around, using no plastic sheet in any of the panels except the floor for better ventilation. A thin strip is sewn across the ceiling from which to suspend objects such as feeders.
There are two openings in the front panel of BugDorm-4E2260 insect rearing cage. The zippered opening is large enough to insert potted plants. On the zippered opening is a 18-cm sleeve opening for addition or removal of insects and replacement of food without letting insects escape.
The framework of BugDorm-4E2260 insect cage is of lightweight fiberglass and constructed outside the enclosure. There are no places for insects to hide inside the cage.
