So I am tired of replacing the cardboard eggcrate in my feeder bug bins.

I was thinking of taking the untreated cork panels you use for bulletin boards and fitting them together in a honeycomb like structure.

This way I can remove said panels and bake them in the oven to clean them periodically.


Does anyone know if this would work or are there toxins used in making these panels? I already use cork bark chunks and the feeder bugs do not consume them.


I was also thinking of using coco-fiber sheets to add more surface area between cork panels. Does anyone know if various feeder bugs will consume this as well?

The coco-fiber sheets are just fine...totally safe and I have yet to see any consumed....as for the cork, I have no idea what sort of glue they use to stick the cork bits together.

I have successfully used cork boards for B. dubia before. I had no problems, except the fact that they do chew some parts which is the same experience for egg crates. I switched back to egg crates because it is readily available and free.
