|The ELC is the best enclosure
for most stick insects. This stick insect cage is 51cm tall, remember stick
insects need a tall enclosure to grow properly. No extra heating is needed for
stick insects, a warm room is OK. Stick insects like airy cages and it's
important you can see the stick insects clearly. Use ELC Liners to keep the
surroundings clean and to easily control the number of eggs you keep.
cage has two white
mesh sides, providing good ventilation
with holes that are
easy to climb.
|ELC stick insect cage
Stick insects do really well in the ELC cage
because they can easily climb the white sides (these are full of
specially made holes which give the insects a good foothold). These two mesh
sides also ventilate the cage, making it nice and airy.
cage is tall so the stick insects have room to grow properly (they do
this by sliding vertically downwards out of their old skins).
You can see the stick insects very well through the clear
front and back plastic panels. The standard roof also has a clear plastic
It's easy to access the ELC
cage. The roof lifts off and the white side (with the green arrow) slides
upwards. So you can reach sideways into the cage as well as from the top. The
floor is fixed and so it's easy to lift and move the ELC cage
Keep the ELC cage clean by lining the floor with a disposable
ELC Liner (these are available in blue, pink and green). Replace weekly.

The HAP is ideal housing
for baby stick insects. Keep stick insects in the HAP until they are
approximately two months old, they are then ready to be transferred to the ELC
You can easily see the stick insects
because the HAP is made from clear plastic. The HAP has no air holes. Young
stick insects benefit from the enclosed surroundings and have plenty of air to
breathe. Every time you add a fresh leaf, you let more air into the HAP, so
there is plenty of air in there for the stick insects. Always put a wet bramble
leaf in the HAP, so the baby stick insects can have a drink. Replace the HAP
Liner weekly, so they are kept in clean surroundings.
You can store stick insect eggs in the HAP for months, leaving
them to develop inside. You can see at once when they hatch out because the HAP
is transparent and see-through. HAPs are manufactured in the

Soft Cleaning Sponge
It's really important to keep the cage/enclosure/tank
clean and so we recommend washing it once a month.
Pour lukewarm or cold water into a
washing up bowl and add washing up liquid. Soak the Soft Cleaning Sponge in
this solution and then rub it on all panels of the cage. Stubborn stains can be
removed using some "Parozone beach plus stain remover" (this is sold in
hardware outlets). Rinse well with lukewarm or cold tap water and dry the cage
using a soft cotton teatowel. Never use hot water because this can permanently
damage the cage by distorting the plastic panels.
The Soft Cleaning Sponges are
manufactured in the UK.
The size is 11cm x 8cm x 3.5cm.
