On the zippered opening is a 18-cm sleeve opening for addition or removal of insects and replacement of food without letting insects escape. A thin strip is sewn across the ceiling from which to suspend objects such as feeders.
The framework of BugDorm-4E3074 insect cage is of lightweight fiberglass and constructed outside the enclosure. There are no places for insects to hide inside the cage.
