Small in size with good visibility, these pint-sized containers are ideal for raising or breeding small colonies of disease vectors in labs with restricted space. Also suitable for keeping small animals that do not jump, climb, or claw aggressively, the pint-sized insect pot can serve as temporary enclosures to conveniently restrain insects caught in the field.
The highly breathable screen pre-installed on the donut lid is of 104 x 94 mesh Nylon netting. Tainted screens can be easily replaced with fresh ones (sold separately) or substituted by your own screen materials.
The donut lid of the pint-sized insect pot has a matte surface for penciling notes. To assemble a pint-sized insect pot, simply snap down 3 built-in clips around the rim to secure the lid to the pot.
