Caterpillar Castles

No more escaping caterpillars!

These are awesome! Collapsible, lightweight and durable, they fold almost flat. Washable, you can use 10% bleach solution to sanitise before reuse. Made of fine, black mesh to promote healthy air flow which keeps what’s in in, and what’s not in out. Large protected, zippered opening for easy access. Proven design used to raise thousands of healthy critters.

The fine mesh will stop wasps and other nasty predators. The fabric will wick away moisture fast to keep contents dry. Why is the castle black? You can see through black better than white because white reflects light back at you. Black absorbs the light – and it is easier to see the caterpillars or butterflies within.
