Holes in the top or you could cut a section out of the lid and silicone mesh to it.: victory:

Remove the lid. Get a pair of your mums stockings/tights place over mouth of the sweet jar and secure with an elastic band. depending on the species you have depends on whether they like it airy or humid.

If you save your pocket money the Exo terra range of tanks are excellent for anyone wanting to take up sticks for any length of time.
But any cheap tank with a lid will do.

Cupar garden Centre have some of the cheapest ones i've seen with delivery included.

Just remember that they will require an enclosure that is around 3 times their height so they can shed their skins without any problems.

Thanks for the mesh link. Saved me having a look around. I need some to cover the fogger unit when I manage to get it into my tank.

Don't get metal, get some material mesh. I bought some from ebay and its fab for mantids etc. Take the lid off, cut mesh to fit it but a bit larger then jst wrap an elastic band round it. Sorted :)

depends on sp really ,
some prefer humid - so just melt some (quite a few) holes.
some prefer drier/airier - so mesh lid is good .
all methods said previously are good , but if you want cheap mesh , use old net curtain or any fine stuff from a material shop
