ELC insect cage

ELC cage




Brand: Small-Life Supplies
Availability: In stock
Price: £48
Lid off ELC Side panel up ELC Sprig Pot into ELC
Best-selling insect cage
With it's sleek yet practical design, the ELC insect cage is our most popular housing for stick insects, mantids (praying mantises), large beetles, and large caterpillars.

Easy access
The lid of the cage lifts off and one side panel (with a green arrow) slides upwards, so you can easily reach into the cage. Keep your insects in clean surroundings by lining the floor with a disposable ELC Liner, replaced weekly.


Well-ventilated
Many insects do best in an airy cage. The ELC cage has two sides full of specially made holes, to allow the much needed through-draught ventilation. The holes are the right size, so your insects won't suffer from getting their foot claws trapped when they walk on the sides of the cage (this can happen if the holes are too small).

Room to grow
At 51cm (20") tall, the ELC cage provides plenty of height for the insects to grow properly. They do this by sliding vertically downwards out of their old skins when they undergo a skin-change and so that is why they need a tall cage so they have enough room to do this properly.


Specification
The ELC cage is a plastic cage, made in the UK, using precision machinery.

Height 51cm, 20".
Width 36.5cm, 14½".
Depth 27.5cm, 10¾".

Price: £79
Sliding up back door of MIC Sliding up front door of MIC
Professional insect cage
A great insect cage, especially suited for insects which like to hang upside-down, such as leaf insects, Australian Macleays Spectre stick insects, Proscopids (also known as Horsehead grasshoppers), and mantids (praying mantises).

Easy access
The MIC cage has two clear plastic panels which slide upwards so you can easily reach into the cage. You can lift up the panel at the front or the panel at the back. Both panels can be lifted out completely if required. Keep your insects in clean surroundings by lining the floor with a disposable MIC Liner, replaced weekly.


Well-ventilated
Many insects do best in an airy cage. The MIC cage has two aluminium mesh sides and an aluminium mesh roof, so it is a very well-ventilated cage. The holes are the right size, so your insects won't suffer from getting their foot claws trapped when they walk on the sides and roof of the cage (this can happen if the holes are too small).

Room to grow
At 46cm (18") tall, the MIC cage provides plenty of height for the insects to grow properly. They do this by sliding vertically downwards out of their old skins when they undergo a skin-change and so that is why they need a tall cage so they have enough room to do this properly.


Specification
The MIC cage is a metal cage with a special coating applied (which is easy to wipe clean). The MIC cages are made in the UK, using precision machinery.

Height 46cm, 18".
Width 33cm, 13".

Great for eggs
Stick insect eggs take months to hatch and the clear QBOXES are perfect for storing stick insect eggs during their incubation. When the eggs hatch you will see the babies at once because the QBOXES are crystal clear.

Great for small insects
Keep your newly hatched stick insects in the QBOX until they are large enough to be transferred into the ELC cage. Typically this is when the stick insects are approx one month old. QBOXES are also great housing for small caterpillars, small mantids (praying mantises) and tiny beetles.


No air-holes
The QBOX has solid sides and a push-on lid which is also solid. The secret of why the QBOXES work so well is because of their size and the fact they have no air-holes. Do not be tempted to modify your QBOX because it works fine as it is. If ventilation holes are added, the surroundings become too dry in the QBOX, causing the foodplant to dry up and the insects having problems when undergoing their first skin-change.

Easy to clean
QBOXES can be washed with warm soapy water and rinsed well. Each QBOX should be lined with a disposable QBOX Liner, replaced every few days.

Specification
The QBOX is made in the UK from crystal clear plastic.

Height 7cm, 2¾".
Width 7cm, 2¾".
Depth 7cm, 2¾".

No gaps, so great aphid cage
The GSC cage is designed with no gaps, so you can keep tiny insects such as aphids and whiteflies in here, confident they cannot escape. There are full length seals running along all the joins, ensuring there are no gaps. The GSC cage has a large overlapping door for easy access. This door is lockable (and spare keys are supplied).

Great for housing growing plants
You can have potted plants in the GSC cage and put a light on top of the cage to help them grow. Customers are already using this set up with great success and so we are happy to advise if you require more information on the lighting option.


Well-ventilated
The tiny insects and the potted plants both require very airy conditions to thrive. The GSC cage has a large mesh panel on three sides and also the roof, facilitating a natural free flow of air. The mesh is top quality very fine stainless steel mesh (hole size less than 1mm), so there is no chance of the aphids escaping.

Specification
The GSC is made in the UK from galvanised steel and has very fine stainless steel mesh panels. It is supplied flat-packed or, depending on your location, may be assembled on-site by our team.

Height 60cm, 23½".
