Formerly BugDorm-42222F (BD42222F)

Of the same structure as BugDorm-4 series insect cages with 96 x 26 mesh Polyester netting, this BugDorm-4F series uses very fine 150 x 150 mesh Nylon netting that effectively keeps aphids, thrips, and parasitic wasps from escaping or entering the cage.

External dimensions of BugDorm-4F2222 insect cage are only L24.5 x W24.5 x H24.5 cm, making it a perfect fit for lab selves with limited space.

BugDorm-4F2222 insect cage is very easy to assemble by simply connecting poles with splints.  The front panel of BugDorm-4F2222 insect rearing cage is of clear plastic for observing insect activity; the top and three side panels are of fine Nylon netting (150 x 150 mesh) for ventilation.  There is a 17-cm sleeve opening in the front panel for addition or removal of insects and for replacement of food material.  A thin strip is sewn across the ceiling from which to suspend objects such as feeders.

The framework of BugDorm-4F2222 insect cage is of lightweight fiberglass and constructed outside the enclosure. There are no places for insects to hide inside the cage.
