Can you describe the mesh size?  Is it a plastic strainer or one of 
the kind with window screen type material?  More like a colander, perhaps?

I'd like to get some of these beetles, but I don't have a real good idea
of their size.  My last acquaintance with them was in a bowl of porridge 
one early morning when I was a little kid.  I now realize how dazed an 
adult can be before the first cup of coffee....
