About this deal

After you’ve enjoyed their companionship, you can release them outside into the lap of nature when the temperature is above 50°F. The Chinese Oak Silkmoth Antheraea pernyi has become week and inbred in captivity, but now we have wild silk cocoons direct from China. The increase in farming, forestry, land and building development and climate change result in the decline of butterflies and moths.

The caterpillars are usually available from the 15th of March to 15th September (exact dates are dependent on weather). The caterpillars are usually available from the end of February to Mid September (exact dates are dependent on weather). However, if you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact me via the contact form. Our butterfly caterpillars for sale are hand-selected and shipped directly to your doorstep, ensuring they arrive healthy and ready to begin their journey to becoming a beautiful butterfly.Information on the distribution, food plants and life cycle of each species illustrated is included. The directions/information pamphlet is very helpful with lots of useful facts and information to accompany. Alternatively keep in a plastic box, lined with absorbent paper, in close confinement with fresh foodplant, and changed daily.

Sleeving is the most natural method for rearing larvae, proving constantly fresh food, with protection from parasites and predators, and preventing escape. Once you have released your butterflies, they can often be seen for several days- especially if you have a butterfly friendly garden and feeder.This educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. That's why we recommend you release your butterflies when daytime temperatures are above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. We were amazed at how much we learned and enjoyed the process of watching these creatures transform. The caterpillars will remain inside the cup where they will eat, spin silk and grow to TEN times their original size. This 8-panel laminated fold-out chart shows colour images of the caterpillars of 57 of the more commonly encountered species in Britain and Ireland.

A signature will always be required, so please ensure that someone is available to sign for your parcel.Most butterflies prefer to feed on nectar, but others will feed on the juices of rotting fruit or animal dung. The child gets the opportunity to raise and feed their very own butterflies that they can then release into the wild!
