Works Great

Bought 3 of these and they worked perfectly.

Best HAbitats ever!

I love the size, as you can house lots of cats / chrysalides and you can clean very easily and also remove the butterflies, as they are ready to be released, with out having tight quarters. The viewing window is great, to easily look in and see if anything needs to be done, without having to constantly unzip the habitat opening. I HIGHLY recommend this cube. I have your other sizes as well, but this is my favorite...

A nice large cage

Haven't had many caterpillars this summer (7 Black Swallowtail, don't have any milkweed so no Monarchs), but this cage will be wonderful for any future generations of caterpillars; thank you for a quality product!

Gabriele Monshausen

I transferred four 5th instar Monarch caterpillars to the cage (I had protected newly laid eggs and younger caterpillars with 5 gallon paint strainer bags directly on the A. syriaca plants). The tubes worked really well to keep A. syriaca leaves fresh but young stem cuttings quickly wilted. All caterpillars pupated and eclosed successfully and I released the last one today. The cage was easy to clean (at least for the short period I had the caterpillars in the cage) and large enough for the newly emerged butterflies to 'stretch their wings' and flutter about for a couple of hours. This was my first attempt at raising Monarchs and the cage and tubes/racks made it easy!

Hi Gabriele, thank you for your feedback. If your stem cuttings were wilting, check this out for some helpful tips:

Butterfly enclosure

I purchased a book, large cube enclosure, small cube that I use for releasing butterflies, a bootrack/vials for keeping milkweed. These items were worth every penny. Good quality, easy to use, easy to see the cats and keep track of them, easy to clean. This is my first experience raising monarchs, I have successfully released 9 out of the 20 I have so far! I am very happy and would highly recommend monarch butterfly life! Thank you so much for making this easy!

Love the Tall Baby Caterpillar Cages

These are my favorite cages for raising my butterflies. The poo poo platter fits in this cage for easier cleaning and during my busy time mid-season I had seven of these cages is use at the same time!! I have learned so much through you and this community and have improved my raising skills and raising capacity over the last three years. I've also gotten others to begin
using these cages.

Great racks for the tubes

These short racks hold the floral tubes securely and are well made. I like the white racks for the floral picks, but I've had 2 cats make their chrysalis on the underside of the squares. I had to move them (very nerve-racking!) This doesn't happen with these shorter racks. Definitely beats using egg cartons to hold the tubes!!

Life with Monarchs

Have learned to love the cubes!! They help me to provide a more “ normal” environment for my cats and butters…and I appreciate all of the information provided by this web site. Thanks!

Perfect setup.

The mesh cage, the plastic tubes, and the short peg tube racks all worked perfectly to help me protect and successfully raise my Monarchs. Great products!

caterpillar cage

I love the clear mesh cages they are my favorite. You can see whatever you have inside.
