  • Patent number: 4212267
    Abstract: An insect study station comprising an elongated transparent cylinder enclosed and supported by a detachable base. The interior of said base having constructed an indentation therein defining a food cup of a configuration affording open access to the transparent cylinder. The upper end of the cylinder is enclosed by an undercap. The undercap telescopically encloses the cylinder and has constructed in the under surface of the undercap a recess which can receive and retain a cotton ball. The circular body of the undercap has constructed through it a series of pie shaped apertures. An overcap telescopingly fits over and encases said undercap. The overcap has constructed in its circular body a series of pie shaped apertures. The dispersal and configuration of the pie-shaped apertures in the undercap and the overcap are of such shape and configuration as to permit access to the cylinder when the apertures are aligned and enclose the cylinder when the apertures are staggered.
