Folding Pop-Up Butterfly Enclosure measures 36x36x60cm. It features ant proof mesh walls with one wall made of transparent plastic to help to observe your caterpillars, butterflies or other invertebrates like stick insects and lady beetles. The front opens fully with a zip for easy access or for when butterflies need to be released. The top has two carry handles. The butterfly enclosure is durable and can be washed and stored away to be used again year after year.
Up to 10 butterflies can be kept in the Pop Up Butterfly Enclosure for 3-5 weeks, you just need to feed them. To feed butterflies, soak a paper towel in sugary water (1-2 teaspoons of sugar per glass of water) and place it on top of the enclosure. Butterflies are attracted to light and often hang out at the top of the enclosure. This is where you place your paper towel. You can also put one at the bottom of the cage, just in case. Additionally, mist the mesh of your enclosure daily with clean water to keep the butterflies hydrated.
Please note: we have reached our capacity for Caterpillar Kits for the month of May and June and the weather is closing in. We will start sending Orchard Swallowtail butterfly kits from 15 July to the warmer states and Monarch Caterpillar kits from 7th October 2019 everywhere else.
The caterpillar kit is perfect for a classroom or home. Observe the metamorphosis and the butterfly life cycle for 4-6 weeks!
