The 2120S insect tent is one of the most popular tent. Of tent-like design with a framework of lightweight fiberglass, the 2120S is a portable housing for raising or breeding insects and other small animals such as spiders and lizards.
The front and back panels of 2120S insect rearing tent are of clear plastic for observation of insect activity; the two side panels are of Polyester netting (96 x 26 mesh) for ventilation. There are two openings in the front panel of the 2120S. The zippered opening is large enough to insert small potted plants. Centered in the zippered opening is a smaller sleeve opening (18 cm diameter) for addition or removal of insects and for replacement of food material without letting insects escape.
The 2120S insect tent is constructed so that support poles are outside the enclosure. There are no places for insects to hide inside 2120S.
