Step 2: Part 2:Main Body Continued.

No.1, Fold the net in the opposite direction to how they were before.
No.2, Sellotape the tabs tightly.
No.3, Cut the highlighted piece off.

Step 3: Part 3: Door.

Once you have removed the front, sellotape it on to the small tab that is left behind.

Step 4: Part 4: the Neck.

No.1, Very carefully, pierce a hole about 3-4 inches up the tube.
No.2, Thread some string through the hole.
No.3, Make sure that the string comes through the long end of the tube.

    So this is to catch the bugs and release them outside, cool idea. I'm one of those squeamish and easily scared people.
