The GSC cage
GSC aphid cages

GSC cages are being used worldwide for housing and studying tiny insects such as aphids.

Made from galvanised steel, these cages have full length seals to ensure there are no gaps.

Access is via the front overlapping door which is lockable (spare keys are included).

These cages have very fine stainless steel mesh panels for ventilation, these are located on three sides of the cage and also the roof, facilitating a good circulation of air.

Many of our customers use these cages for growing plants and so we are happy to supply details of the Growth Lighting Units which fit neatly over the top mesh panel.

The GSC cages can be supplied ready assembled or flat-packed (depending on your location).
