Handy Item

The short pegs and water containers are awesome. The caterpillars love to clime up and chomp on the milkweed. They also allow easy cleaning of the habitat floor while the 'cats' are busy climbing and chomping. I've just placed another order!

Convenience in a tube, sweet.

I usually put milkweed plants in tall tower, but can't put too much in otherwise may touch wing when emerging from pupae. This is 3rd year raise and release, and these will work great, and give them a choice of what they want to eat

The Perfect Tools

The rack and tubes make it so easy to keep cuttings fresh/organized/uprightā€¦makes it easier to keep all the poop cleaned up too since most of it falls around the tubes to the ground away from caterpillars. I just came back for two more for my other enclosures since I consider them a necessary tool for raising happy caterpillars. (My rue clippings with giant swallowtail cats pictured below.)

Perfect Fit!

I love how the pegs are shorter on this version. The tubes hold much more water, so the MW stays fresh longer.

Great gift for the kids

Gave it to my son for his 5th birthday so we have a better plan than the jar we used last year. Everything came as I expected and we are excited to find some caterpillars to start!

Perfect!

Donā€™t know how I lived without these! Constantly wasting paper towels and doing cleanup was a pain until I got these poo poo platters! Now all I do is take them out, dump the frass, disinfect(with weak bleach solution), dry and return. Easy peasy!

Tube Tops with smaller holes - Must have!

I purchased the package of small hole tube covers thinking I may or may not need them. So far, I've used every single one of them! It's good to have a mix of small and larger tops, in my opinion.
