Flexible, reusable, (nonflammable?) alternative to egg flats?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I would like to know if you can think of an alternative surface to eggflats that could be used for roaches to climb around on that is a fabric or similarly flexible material which could be hung in several sheets from the top of the enclosure, and hopefully last a very long time without decaying. Ideally this would also be flame-resistant for safety purposes. Thanks!

Window screen?  They sell it made from metal or fiberglass.  Fiberglass will be more flexible.

That's a good idea. I have a big roll of it that I can use, I'd just have to do something about the sharp edges.

Hot glue will cover the edges.  I've used it on screen before.

Good Luck!
