Lets talk about safety for your pets. We have designed this product to offer security from dangers great and small. The world is full of dangers for a small animal; other animals, dangerous plants, bacteria, viruses and people to name just a few. This soft cage offers protection by limiting the contact with each of these dangers and enclosing your pet in a safe, soft, comfortable cube. We have raised many types of pets in these with great success including;
  • Caterpillars / Butterflies / Moths

  • Insects of all kinds they love climbing the sides 5 square feet of walking space!

  • Small Birds, they feel safe and secure. Dust falls through floor.

  • Small Animals of all kinds are comfy in these cubes.

  • Perfect as a temporary cage while you travel or clean you larger cages.

  • Has been used to stop pollination of certain orchids and plants by insects.

  • Used in wildlife rehabilitation as a safe lightweight and compact field cage and in office habitat.

 

Endorsed for shows to keep your birds safe and isolated from other livestock, possible contaminants, insects and people.

This caterpillar wrangler loves the new system!
 You just place your nice plants and clean caterpillers inside and check for new pupae or adults. Use these cages for egg laying females and small batch specialty butterflies like Eastern Black Swallowtails, cabbage whites and gulf frits. When the lifecycle or plants are done, replace or sanitize by soaking in a garbage can filled with 10% bleach and rinsing.
 They look like new in just minutes!

Here is a picture of the Jumbo cages in action in a big way!

10-50 caterpillars in each large castle in the greenhouse. You do the math.
With the new Jumbo size you can put the whole plant inside with the pot too!

These large cages were used for 7 months outdoors, repeatedly sanitized and washed out after each lifecycle.
We folded them flat and are using the same ones this year. Tip: Just keep the frass dry!
