Parasitic proof butterfly rearing cages. Parasite and parasitoid-proof cages are important because, tiny little parasitic wasp that love to lay eggs in chrysalids & caterpillars cannot get through the mesh cage.  Some other benefits are:

  • Breathable mesh cage keeps air flowing and humidity levels down
  • Clean cage without disturbing chrysalises in a caterpillar cage
  • Small caterpillars can’t escape tiny mesh holes
  • Mesh sides can receive direct sun without ‘cooking’ the caterpillars
  • No dangerous nooks and crannys like laundry hamper pop-ups
  • Clean frass (poop) easily by lining the cage with paper towels
  • Use as a rearing cage to release and raise butterflies or moths
  • Use plain Lysol to clean cage between batches
  • rinse off with hose, then sun dry. 
  • Allow to air dry overnight for next caterpillar brood
