    These bags are supplied in various sizes as for our frames which are 30-38-40-50-60cm

    The special colours we chosed, after many different choices of black-green and white doesn't allow the brightness of the sun to mix up the real color of the butterfly you just collected, this feature allows you to see clearly through the specimen before you decide to kill it and keep or decide to leave it alive.

Cerambycidae and so on ) with a normal net

    We firstly created the smaller size of 70cm for the "Honeydew" hunt on leafs as we re-created the Honeydew artificially but with natural ingredients for human consumption in different tastes

    We also produce and sell it , you can read more about it in the "honeydew" section.
