By far the largest & most flexible type of housing, for either the larger species of stick insect, praying mantis, or in the case of stick insect can be used to house larger colonies
As well as insect they can also be used to house other animals too, some arboreal reptiles for example, I have even sold them to house bats,that are injured or nursing.
There are differant styles of net cages listed here, from our largest 3ft tall pop up cages to small 1ft models.
They have many advantages in using this type of housing, the only disadvantage is some species that require higher levels of humidity will require more spraying to keep up to those levels.
As I have said previous it's all about doing your homework,finding out what your particular species require then choosing the correct housing to give it a healthy life
These net cages are not pop up, they are supplied with rods, for you to assemble at home or whilst out on a field trip
