- Nail strips of wood into a rectangular prism, and attach fly-wire to all sides but the bottom.
- Plant wild cotton into a couple of pots, making sure there's extra for when the caterpillars eat it all.
- Go find some caterpillars or eggs, put them on the cotton plants and place fly-wire cube over the top.
- Done! Just make sure the ants don't get to them, and that there's plenty of food to eat.
