Insect cages and snail tanks...
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.

ELC stick insect cage with stick insects
The ELC cage has two white
mesh sides, providing good ventilation.
Stick insects can climb easily by
hooking their claws around
the white mesh sides.


ELC stick insect cage
Made in the UK
Successful track record, been in production for 11 years!

Stick insects do really well in the ELC cage because they can easily climb the white mesh sides (these are full of specially made holes which give the insects a good foothold). These mesh sides also ventilate the cage, making it nice and airy.

The ELC 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 viewing area.

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 around.

Keep the ELC cage clean by lining the floor with a disposable ELC Liner (these are available in green, blue and pink). Replace weekly.

ELC cages are manufactured in the UK and are dispatched ready assembled so can be used straight away.

The ELC cage has a lift off lid (as well as one removable white mesh side panel).
Putting a green Liner into the ELC cage

The white mesh panel slides upwards
When you have inserted the ELC Liner and fresh food, just slide the white mesh side panel back in place. Put the lid back on top of the ELC cage.



HAP with Indian nymphs HAP
Made in the UK
Successful track record, been in production for 2 years!

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 cage.

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 UK.

Height 13cm, 5".
Diameter 7.5cm, 3".

HLQ Snail Cage
Assorted vegetables,
Water Dish,
and eggshells on the wet HLQ Liner
HLQ giant snail cage
Made in the UK
Successful track record, been in production for 7 years!

The HLQ cage is supplied with grey HLQ Liners that are designed to be used wet. This is a successful and hygienic way to maintain high humidity in the cage. So there are no unpleasant flies and smells associated with having wet soil at the bottom.

The HLQ cage is designed for snails with a shell length of 3cm or more. If you have adult Giant African Land Snails, also provide a dish of soil (for them to bury their eggs).

It's easy to access the HLQ cage. The roof lifts off and the front panel slides upwards.


The HLQ is made from thermal performance plastic which means that if the surroundings get hotter, the panels change shape and let more air into the cage. This type of plastic is also exceptionally easy to clean, and so the snail poo and any detritus can easily be washed off using lukewarm water and the Cleaning Sponge.

HLQ cages are manufactured in the UK and are dispatched ready assembled so can be used straight away.


Specification:
Height 40cm, 15½".
Width 36.5cm, 14½".
Depth 27.5cm, 10¾".
Weight 2.4kg.
