Caterpillar Setups > Collapsible Cages

Collapsible cages are ideal for when raising caterpillars either on potted plants or with host cuttings.  When using potted plants indoors, place near a window to obtain filtered sunlight; watering the plant regularly.

When using cuttings indoors, keep away from direct sunlight and replace cuttings every three to four days consistent with quality of host.  Remove caterpillar frass regularly.

These popup cages are easily sanitized with Lysol or bleach and can be collapsed for storage when not in use. It is easier to see through black cages than white cages in brighter or outdoor environments. Both can be ordered online.
