The Butterfly Pavilion with Voucher Includes:
- 2-foot tall mesh, pop-up habitat perfect for butterfly viewing
- Feeding Pipette
- Complete Caterpillars to Butterflies Instruction Guide
- 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.
Two 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!
Due to import restrictions, Insect Lore cannot ship outside the Continental United States. We cannot ship live insects specimens to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, or Mexico. We also cannot ship live product overseas.

Decades later, Insect Lore ships hundreds of thousands of caterpillars and butterfly kits to excited families and students across the US, the UK and Europe each year. Our innovative product line now includes ladybug, praying mantis and ant growing kits, as well as hands-on educational products that make science more approachable and relatable to young learners.
