A great start

This is a wonderful size to begin your story with monarch butterflies.
Big enough for several caterpillars and even a plant. The poo poo platter is a easy to clean with a paper towel or the dust buster and gives it all great stability. This is a easy to transport and share the excitement with others.
Of course, the rack and the tubes are a great help here.

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 🐛🦋🌱✨🌴🌊

The perfect little home for a small group of caterpillars

I love this enclosure! I use it with the poopoo platter and it works really well. I wouldn't use this if you have a ton of caterpillars, but it works really great for me since I live in Southern California and have less of a need to bring caterpillars in out of the cold. I use this to rear a few at a time because I personally love it, and for educational purposes for the kids I teach.

The drawbridge door makes it super easy to add new food or cats, and especially easy to clean the cage. The poopoo platter helps with cleaning and so that the enclosure keeps it's structure when I need to move it. And I'll note that both products are much better and easier to use than the first round of similar items I got on Amazon, all of which had various problems that made them unuseable and even dangerous for caterpillars and various diseases.

Sourcing these items from a website dedicated to helping the beautiful species is really the best for them and us.

Baby Cube cage

Very well designed. I have loved this although my two cats seem to have died in their chrysalis form. I will wash it well with 20% bleach with water before the next season.

New Options

I purchased the baby cube to raise Monarchs from eggs. It has been very successful. The small cubes allow for transporting your cats or cocoons easily. The cage cleaning is very manageable, as well, partly because you can put the cage on the counter by the sink. I love all the products on this website. Never had any problems with supplies.

Perfect as a greenhouse

I much prefer the smaller square Baby Cube for raising cats. When I had them in this cage, so many of them just stopped at the zipper to form their chrysalides. I must have lazy cats. But, I’m starting a lot of milkweed by seed and I had butterflies laying eggs on my tiny seedlings. I discovered this is the perfect greenhouse when laid on its side. Keeps the butterflies away and it seems to keep the aphids at bay, too. It’s worked out perfectly!

Love mine

I now have 3 Baby Cubes, 1 Nursery cube, and one Tall Cube. The Baby Cube is the perfect manageable size for me. I have chrysalides in one, and feeding cats in another. I will continue to rotate the baby cubes in order to keep feeding cats away from eclosing adults.

Happy customer

The tall tent I purchased was thoughtfully designed and well made. I have already recommended a couple of friends to the company

Baby butterfly cage

It’s pretty cool. I can’t wait to use it. I have been using jars or bug cages. This will be easy to put small plants in it.
