Clip cages are special tools used for raising small plant-eating insects for research. They enable researchers to observe and conduct experiments on insects reared on particular plant parts, such as leaves or buds. These cages are lightweight, breathable, weather-resistant, and easy to use. They are widely used in agricultural pest management, insect ecology, and entomological behavioral studies. Clip cages can be used to study how different insecticides or biological control methods affect insects, as well as to observe insect growth and reproduction under various environmental conditions, like changes in temperature or humidity.
