Our zipped non-fray nylon sleeves have a sewn-in top panel so there is no ruching to trap insects and a full length vertical zip for easy access, as well as an elastic drawstring in the bottom hem. These versatile sleeves can simply be pulled over a tree branch, shrub or other plant.  When fastened at the bottom the sleeves provide a secure environment for insect study.  A cord-lock is available as a separate product which makes it even easier to secure the elastic drawstring.

 

Additionally our sleeves are designed to fit over an optional supporting frame (as pictured), to make a handy flowerpot cage. Simply insert the 'legs' of the assembled frame around your growing plant and into the firmed soil in your pot, slip on the netting cover, and hey-presto! - an instant self-contained habitat. They are extremely useful when breeding or overwintering insects on potted plants. All our frame kits are easy to assemble and pack flat for storage.  They include one set of frame legs (single piece or sectional) with connectors and one top ring set.

 

If you just want the sleeve, or are buying a replacement sleeve for an existing frame, make sure you have selected the “Net only” option.
