About Our Cages
Insectopia flowerpot frames and sleeves provide natural conditions for keeping some spiders and a very wide variety of insects in the best of health. Suitable insects include butterflies, moths, mantids, stick insects, beetles and aphids. Our products are supplied in flat packs with easy assembly instructions.
Designed for indoor or outdoor use, our flowerpot frames are designed to be self supporting and are made of sturdy plastic covered wire with metal fittings. Simply insert the 'legs' of the assembled frame around your growing plant and into the firmed soil in your pot, slip on the netting cover, and hey-presto! - an instant self-contained habitat. All Insectopia frames can be used with either square or round pots, and are very quickly dismantled for flat storage after use.
Insectopia zipped flat-top cages suit all insects, particularly flying types for pairing and egg-laying. Our shorter models have a versatile single-zipped vertical side entry and our longer models feature a double-slider zip. The bottom of the sleeve has an elastic draw built into the hem. Our standard gathered-top cages suit all insects that crawl, jump, or burrow and are also suitable for some flying types, including adults emerging from pupae. They are secured at the top by a tie cord (supplied) and the bottom of the sleeve has an elastic draw built into the hem. The cover easily peels downward for entry to the cage.
