I saw similar in a specialist reptile shop at the weekend, would guess as long as correct humidity/Temp can be achieved your good to go.

I have an Exo Terra Incubator also listed as suitable for queen rearing, heats and cools but humidity regulation not included.
The RCOM Insect 70 is advertised a suitable to use with the Nicot system of cages .... would be interested to see how it works out.
Incubator shop also sell all the Nicot system... not sure if China copy or French originals?
Thanks for the heads up

I have been looking at these for a year. I have now found a source on the internet at only £60 from Germany. Incubator shop is over twice as much as are other UK suppliers.
I have ordered one using my credit card and I am waiting for it. They say 7 to 10 days to ship by standard post and I know that Germany are suffering regional Covid lockdowns. I am waiting expectantly.
I think the Chinese 'knockoff' cages will fit as they are held in place by foam pieces.
At this price I thought of buying 10 and selling them on eBay!!!!!

You might be glad you ordered by credit card, the website has disappeared.

more than 20, less than 100.
Clicking on that link gives me a warning about hackers.

I bought one this year from the incubator shop.
I find it works as it should. I use nicot cages with it, which can be a bit tight fitting in-between the plastic dividers if inserting lots of cages.
I'm happy with it at the moment.

That's good to know as Santa just delivered one for me yesterday. Can't wait to get it into action next spring.
