Butterfly Information

Painted Lady Butterfly

  • Butterfly larvae take between 14-26 days to complete their life cycle. We recommend release of the adult butterflies within three days, weather permitting.
  • Approximately 70% (or 23 out of 30) of your larvae should survive and grow into adult butterflies.
  • Larvae must be shipped by air to ensure live arrival. Shipping charges will be applied and will depend on your location and how many sets you have ordered.
  • Accessory items such as terrariums, books, and posters may be shipped separately via regular mail to save you shipping charges.
