These containers are also used to shuttle the mosquito colonies from one place to another. The pint-sized insect pot can serve as temporary enclosures to conveniently restrain insects caught in the field.
The highly breathable screen pre-installed on the donut lid top snap cap is of 24 x 24 mesh netting made of nylon used especially for insect rearing. Tainted screens can be easily replaced with fresh ones sold separately or substituted by your own screen materials.

1. Larval assays: No fear of mixing with accidentally fallen containers since the mesh prevent flowing of larvae along with treated water. The locked lid never come out unless you open the locks
2. Carrying adults: Traditional carrying insects between spaces within the laboratory or between institutions require fastening mesh around the container, which can easily come off with mild disturbances
3. Separately rear field collected larvae until they become pupae so microbial infections will not spread in the insectary from field collected larvae
4. Can be used to hatch larvae till 2 instars. Transfer the grown larvae into rectangular enamel trays
