Don’t know how I lived without these! Constantly wasting paper towels and doing cleanup was a pain until I got these poo poo platters! Now all I do is take them out, dump the frass, disinfect(with weak bleach solution), dry and return. Easy peasy!

Tube Tops with smaller holes - Must have!

I purchased the package of small hole tube covers thinking I may or may not need them. So far, I've used every single one of them! It's good to have a mix of small and larger tops, in my opinion.

Handy Item

The short pegs and water containers are awesome. The caterpillars love to clime up and chomp on the milkweed. They also allow easy cleaning of the habitat floor while the 'cats' are busy climbing and chomping. I've just placed another order!

Convenience in a tube, sweet.

I usually put milkweed plants in tall tower, but can't put too much in otherwise may touch wing when emerging from pupae. This is 3rd year raise and release, and these will work great, and give them a choice of what they want to eat

Everything for my butterflies in one place.

Great website and quality products. Website is informative
which is great. Have one of these and are great for raising butterflies. Thank you.
