Building a Better Mite Washer

Building a Better Mite Washer – Larry Clamp

Notes from Randy:

  • Tinkerer Larry Clamp put together a very nice set up illustrated instructions for building mite washer cups, and is generously sharing them.  Thanks, Larry!
  • The thin black screen from package bee cages (or some older veils) is easier to work with than hardware cloth, and
  • Depending upon the type of plastic cup, some expensive glues intended for plastics may work (I found that the alcohol may eventually work under the silicone).  Brion Dunbar tells me that he’s had good luck with 3M ScotchWeld High Performance Industrial Plastic Adhesive 4693H.
