Excellent quality cages!

I have raised and released 5 healthy monarch butterflies so far with the help of these cages and the flower tubes/peg racks/poo poo platters. Hopefully many more to come! Such a rewarding, easy, and fun hobby to do. Thank you from Florida 🐛🦋🌱✨🌴🌊

Wonderful book!

Anyone who loves Monarch butterflies and wants to raise and release them should get this book. It is easy to understand and very helpful. Any questions you may have...just look inside and you will probably find the answer. Tony's love for Monarchs and experience has helped me to successfully raise these magnificent creatures. Thank you Tony.

TALL Baby Butterfly Cage w/ Viewing and Short Peg Rack + 8pk Fat Cat Floral Tubes

Came quick and was exactly what we needed. Had over 30 cat's show up in January - early this year. Was not sure with weather going into the 40's at night if they would survive. Cage big enough to put potted plants in. East to clean. We have released 10 butterflies so far and have 20+ cocoons. Loved being able to see them go from cats, to cocoons, to butterflies safely inside the house. Easy to carry outside to give them sun and fresh air during the day. Would recommend and buy again!!!

These were actually a gift for a neighbor who raises monarchs. I've let milkweed grow in my back yard and she harvests it for the caterpillars and eggs that she finds there as well as other places nearby. She loves them and is looking forward to the new season.
