Best for macro moths
By Neil 18 Apr 2017 Unconfirmed Purchase

I "came by" a set of these 15 years ago and when I needed more, I could not find any for sale and I bought the standard glass "tubes". When the tubes are dropped they break and sometimes they have broken in my pocket (sharp glass in one's pocket is not good) and slowly but surely, the tubes have been depleted. Not so these "bug pots" which are made of an incredibly durable plastic (I have never known one break and my kitchen floor, which serves as the moth lab, has a quarry tiled floor) which only slowly becomes glazed.

I still have several of them plus the odd lid-less one and they remain my first choice for potting up the average-sized macro moth because, and this is the real beauty of them, the lid is very shallow and this makes it possible to "scoop" the moth into the pot with minimal risk of losing it. I think they are brilliant and very under-rated (though the magnifying lid is a bit of a joke).
