The best is a 32ounce insect cup with a cloth lid(keeps nymphs and fruit flies in). Glue the ooth to the bottom side of the lid with the zipper down(the zipper is the line on the ooth where the foam meets-this is where the nymphs hatch out, so it can't be obstructed.

Have lots of fruit flies ready...

If you don't have an insect cup you can get material to rubber band over any container.:D
