That's a great idea! How do you make the mesh top? How else do you guys take care of your frogs while on vacation? Thanks,
It's called Plastic Canvas and is made for needlepoint. I use it in my FF cultures in place of excelsior. It can be washed and reused over and over again (though I'd recommend throwing it away if the culture develops mold). Nice thing about it is that it's cheap. You can buy it at Michael's or other craft stores for about $0.30 a sheet. The sheets are 10 1/2" by 13 1/2", so you can cut enough for a half a dozen cultures out of one sheet. It comes in many different counts (number of little square holes per inch) and sizes, but I'd recommend just getting the cheapest. The flies don't seem to care much. Here's a pic:tuthelimit said:Ben,
Where did you get the mesh or what do you make it out of? Very cool idea, I plan to borrow it
Yep, me too...Scott said:I really miss having Ben Green contributing here. He is one of the good ones.
I just noticed that this got bumped two years after the last post. To the day. That is all, back to the frogs.Dendro Dude said:bump :wink:
