Our Tall Bug Box is very versatile. It can be used vertically for jumping spiders, mantises etc  or horizontally for ground dwelling inverts. This enclosure is suitable for all mantises – all the way to adulthood as well.

This kit has been specifically designed for mantises.  They need to be able to grip to the sides of the enclosure which aids them in catching their prey as well as clinging space for molting.  To help with this process we attach mesh on four sides of the enclosure: The top, and three sides (not including the door).  The mesh needs to be attached at least 2cm off the ground level so that crickets can’t climb the mesh. You don’t want the cricket to be able to interfere or hurt the mantis when he is molting.

In this kit we glue the mesh to the enclosure sides using hot glue.  If you would like to glue this yourself, please let us know at checkout. You may want to provide a bark climbing piece and a fake plant as well, just make sure the mantis has some free space to hang from the ceiling to molt without any interference of accessories.

This kit contains :

One Tall Bug Box
4 pieces of mesh glued to the the ceiling and three sides of the enclosure.
(Plants and bark is not provided)

To avoid warping : Acrylic is not suitable for bio-active setups as the humidity levels could cause the edges of the doors to warp. Direct sunlight should also be avoided for this reason. Never saturate the walls when misting.
