PaperTunnel Liners for whole nest management  
We offer three styles of paper liners: opaque white, brown kraft and Pre-slit.  All fit in our Binderboard
® tunnels.
Opaque white and kraft:  Thin, to minimize reduction in the tunnel diameter; coated to minimize absorption of water from provisions in the nest.
Pre-slit:  Same as opaque white, but pre-slit lengthwise so you can open them quickly for cleaning or parasite removal.  The slit gives you a quick view of nest contents, and saves time if you work with lots of liners. 
(Note:  translucent liners are no longer available.) 

  Opaque white or Kraft brown Pre-slit 
40 Liners $4.80 $8.00
60 Liners  $6.60 $11.80   
120 Liners   $12.00   $23.50
315 Liners  $29.00   $61.10
