Awesome! But careful w/miners...

I have purchased all sizes and have several "towers" to compare to. This one has the clear mesh which the youth that come to learn "Plight of the Pollinators: Monarch Educ." really like. I have had no problems with zippers (maybe I got a newer version?). Yes, the frame is a little more flimsy, but I secure mine under a table anyway and it's not an issue for me. Be aware though, that the mesh size is larger. Tachnid flies can not get in, but I have tiny milkweed miners that can get in and out. I have to use my old cages to protect my milkweed. I did not read that it should be used indoors for tiny wasps. My bad! Overall good purchase and as always trusted site.

Bigger than expected

I purchased the big cube thinking it would be easier to raise and release more butterflies, and was pleasantly surprised at how big it was! I've been using jars and plastic tubs so this will be much easier for me to maintain. I also got the tubes with both sizes of lids for my variety of milkweed plants. Everything arrived quickly and in perfect condition and I can't wait to get started!

Love these cages

My caterpillars are safe. My butterflies 🦋 dry and fly. And I get to watch all of it

Great web site to do business with; quality items

I've purchased several items from the web site. Quality items. Towers, large baby cubes, floral pics have held up well. I raise Monarchs outdoors on 120 Milkweed and in "former" dining room set up to hold 7 nurseries (cages) so far. Purchased cages from another site but couldn't compare with Monarch Butterfly Life site items. I like the tall towers and the large baby cubes especially as convenient and the Monarchs have room to move as caterpillars or butterflies. The floral pics are idea to hold Milkweed for cats and flower cuttings for overnight butterflies. Thank-you

Well made and convenient

Happy to be able to protect my caterpillars from wasps in the upcoming season.

Great enclosure

Thank you for this excellent enclosure that is a little smaller than my others.

Wonderful products

Thank you so much for your enclosures and poo poo platters! They’re all good quality and just what I need to care for my butterfly caterpillars.

Nice size

These will be perfect for days when I have to release a butter while I am at work because the mornings are a bit too cold. No more driving back home to release them into the sunshine.

Good quality & gets the job done.
