- Voucher to redeem online at InsectLore.com for two cups of 10 live caterpillars (5 caterpillars in each cup). Please note that an additional $9.95 fee is required when you redeem your certificate. This fee covers the cost of shipping and handling your Cups of Caterpillars. 6 of the 10 caterpillars are guaranteed to develop into perfect specimens.
2 cups will arrive at your door, each containing 5 caterpillars and just the right amount of nutritious food. For the next seven to ten days, your caterpillars will focus on eating and growing. Be sure to keep your cup of caterpillars out of direct sunlight.
The Butterfly Pavilion is a convenient, pop-up habitat. Its super sheer mesh makes it very easy to view your butterflies. Once the chrysalides have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat. Seven to ten days later, beautiful Painted Lady butterflies will emerge. To help them gain strength, feed them from our Insect Lore Butterfly Feeder - you can watch them feed with their proboscis which is similar to a tongue but works like a straw.
After a few days it’s time to let them go! Take them outside when temperatures are above 55, unzip your habitat and watch them fly away. They might even stick around and pollinate your garden!
