The illuminated Minibeast Centre is not only great for collecting and studying insects but features a solar light that glows in the dark and can attract moths. Now in picture carton with instructions for use.

you can use the centre in 3 ways;

  • For insect sample collection / Field Trips
  • General Insect Study
  • Moth Study

Your minibeasts may be placed inside the study centre via the opening top or through the opening side ports with the perspex windows. You can also put twigs and flower stems inside to provide a temporary habitat whilst studying your bugs and beasties.

A rope handle makes your minibeast centre easy to carry, so you’ll want to take it out and about to collect interesting creatures. The minibeast centre is made of slow-seasoned FSC certified timber, so it will be durable and not require any chemical treatments.

On the top of the minibeast centre is the solar lamp. This is perfect for attracting night-flying insects and bugs such as moths and night flying beetles. Ensure that the rechargeable battery that powers the solar lamp gets a good charge by leaving the minibeast centre out in bright light during the day. In the evening, open the side windows to allow the insects attracted by the light to enter the study chamber.

The minibeast centre is part of our educational range designed to encourage you to Find, Collect & Study minibeasts. When you’ve enjoyed looking at them, just open all the windows and top and release them back into the wild.
