Jar o' roaches


Recommended Posts

Unoccupied at the moment. At a local pet shop I saw this 3l jar with a couple of pots of gecko jelly left in it. I bought the jelly and the owner kindly let me have the jar too. I've just got round to sticking a couple of vents in it.


80mm vents with two (2) layers of nylon mesh (James Sainsbury's finest reusable fruit bags) and fine metal mesh glued on. Overkill, but I want to be very sure nothing gets out, or in.


Nice tightly-clipping gasket lid on the jar, which got me pondering it in the first place. I'll spread a little petroleum jelly or silicone grease around the neck of the jar too.

Next step, to fill it with dirt. After that, fill it with bugs.
