Quick Note: Aquarium Filter Media Bags

While I’ll be putting up a full post concerning yesterday’s meeting of the Utah Lepidopterists’ Society, I wanted to quickly mention one thing I found out. Todd Stout had brought in some caterpillars on a plant to show. He had segregated each of them to a separate branch by using small net bags his wife had sewn. Craig (EntoCraig), one of the founders of the Utah Society of Entomology suggested using aquarium filter media bags. Great idea! These bags are available inexpensively and in multiple sizes. I can see lots of uses for those rearing insects as well as field naturalists. I found this source in a quick search this morning. GW
