Abstract:Cellophane, a transparent cellulose film, of a permeable nature appears to be very adaptable to the life history study of insects on their host plants. The chief disadvantage in its use out-of-doors is that, when wet, Cellophane becomes flabby and upon drying out has a tendency to crack. Some tests were made to determine the actual conditions of temperature and humidity within Cellophane cages. The results show that the atmospheric temperature and humidity with their hourly fluctuations are rather closely approximated—much more so in the case of temperature than humidity.
