  • Please advise... Butterflies all emerged on Saturday night/Sunday morning. But the weather is shocking until Saturday this week!! Storms and rain and wind galore. Horrid! But that'd be 6 days in the habitat which is so unfair! What should we do?

    facebook Icon
    insectlore
  • Hi can I have some advice please, so 2 of 3 butterflies have come out, but them seem a little deformed, and not moving much, could that happen? The crisalis fell off the paper in the tub so we laid them on tissue paper when transferring, so wondered if that hasn't helped them. Should they be more formed? I've generally moved them to the fruit area, but don't think they will feed.

  • We loved our experience with the Insect Lore kit this year. The attached image is Bob, with my daughter Melody. Four of our caterpillars did extremely well and they were released on a sunny day last week (thankfully, since it's rained ever since). Bob, unfortunately, didn't do so well. She was knocked from the lid of the cup by another caterpillar when forming her 'J' shape. She continued to form her chrysalis on the floor, but wriggled up against the side of the cup whilst doing so. The chrysalis was squashed at one end when it was made, and when Bob emerged she had trouble climbing the walls of the butterfly house to let her wings dry. She fell and landed on her back, which resulted in permanently deformed wings. Bob turned out to not be able to fly as a result, and to also struggle with her grip, which meant that she couldn't survive on her own. Sadly, her proboscis didn't fuse either and she was left unable to eat. We made the decision to keep Bob around for as long as possible, and she had done very well - she survived a full week and sadly left us this morning. This has been a fascinating experience from start to finish, and so educational for me as well as my daughter. It's also wonderful that we've been able to raise these caterpillars and to release them (Bob aside) into the big, wide world. Hopefully the others have survived this terrible weather! I was also able to capture every stage on video - including one caterpillar forming a chrysalis, and one emerging as a butterfly (this video is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQyUUnlWw54&t=1s), so I can use these in future to remind my daughter about the process. Thanks, Insect Lore. :-)

After close observation (and Google) I've determined these are eggs! We'd like to try to see these through, so any suggestions with regards to giving them their best chance? Should I place it in a ventilated jar to keep a big mess from happening in the habitat? Help!!

  • Have you been keeping a close eye on your Painted Lady caterpillars as they eat, explore and grow? Look closely and you can often see them spinning a silky webbing around themselves! Not all caterpillar species spin webs, but Painted Lady caterpillars have a variety of uses for webbing, such as attaching themselves to a surface when forming the chrysalis, or preventing themselves from being blown away by high winds. Even the smallest of caterpillars are able to form a protective silk "tent" around themselves. So if you see webbing in your Cup of Caterpillars, it's a good sign!

  • Day 10 of Rylee's caterpillars! So yesterday we missed three of them turning into their chrysalides. One unfortunately didn't make it. And the fifth caterpillar was a late bloomer. He was crawling around the top while the others were already in their chrysalides. Finally in the evening he got into position. We used our time lapse camera (or Rylee's words "fast-mo") to catch him in his metamorphosis. I set up a third take in the morning around 645 and it was complete by 815! #insectloreeurope

  • Do butterflies sleep? Even during the day, naps are taken by insects. A butterfly is not continuously active. She'll stop to nap on a flower after she has drank its nectar. During this nap time, her wings will be folded and she will become much less noticeable to predators. For this reason, the underside of the wings are usually much less colourful than the upper sides and may even blend into the background colours of her environment. #insectloreeurope #butterflyfacts

  • Day 16 of Rylee's caterpillars. We observed the chrysalides this morning and noticed how dark they looked. We shone a light and saw that we can see their wings! Rylee was very excited. After dropping her off at school, I found that one butterfly had emerged in the 15 mins we were gone! I set up the time-lapse camera and was able to capture the second. I caught the third one with regular video which I will post via YouTube since it was a good 5 mins long. Rylee is going to be so happy to see her butterflies when she comes home! #insectloreeurope

  • Hey Insect Lore. We've always loved doing your butterfly kits, but seemed to have an issue with the cardboard stand you put the lid with the chrysalises in. This poor little guy seemed to get stuck between the cardboard base and the chrysalis. By the time we'd noticed him stuck there and tried to help it must have been too late, as he hasn't pumped his wings or fully formed his proboscis. All the other butterflies emerged fine, even those also close to the box.

Butterly Facts
  • Butterfly Fact # 21

    Painted Lady butterflies can cover a lot of ground - up to 100 miles per day during their migration.

  • Butterfly Fact # 32

    A Painted Lady butterfly is capable of reaching speeds of nearly 30 miles per hour.

  • Butterfly Fact # 100

    Butterflies taste with their feet!

  • Butterfly Fact # 5

    The Painted Lady butterfly is the most widely distributed butterfly in the world.

  • Butterfly Fact # 4

    Painted Lady butterflies feed from over 100 different plants; this makes them incredibly vital pollinators.

  • Butterfly Fact # 24

    Caterpillars have twelve tiny eyes located near the mouth on both sides of the head.

  • Butterfly Fact # 47

    Butterflies will often feed from mud puddles to ingest minerals and salts, which are important supplements to their diet.

  • Butterfly Fact # 42

    Caterpillars have false legs at the rear of their bodies, which can be used for grasping or as "suction" cups.

  • Butterfly Fact # 71

    Butterfly wings are formed by layers of "chitin", the protein that makes up an insect's exoskeleton.

  • Butterfly Fact # 11

    When a butterfly emerges from the chrysalis, its mouth is made up of two separate pieces. The butterfly must "fuse" or "zip" these two parts together to form one tubular proboscis before it is able to eat.

  • Butterfly Fact # 99

    Caterpillars spin silk using tiny spinnerets located on the lower part of the head. When you see a caterpillar moving its head from side to side, it is usually spinning silk.

  • Butterfly Fact # 19

    Butterflies belong to an order, or group, called "Lepidoptera". The word "Lepidoptera" means "scaly wings" in Greek.

  • Butterfly Fact # 14

    Most butterflies prefer to feed on nectar, but others will feed on the juices of rotting fruit or animal dung.

  • Butterfly Fact # 20

    If butterflies get too cold, they cannot fly, feed or mate. That's why we recommend you release your butterflies when daytime temperatures are above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Butterfly Fact # 41

    Painted Lady butterflies can adjust to almost any habitat. They are found in suburban, agricultural, swamp, bog, marsh, tundra, desert, meadow, forest, rainforest and mountain environments.

  • Butterfly Fact # 52

    All butterflies have a long, tube-shaped mouth called a "proboscis" which they use to drink liquids such as plant nectar. When not in use, this proboscis stays curled up and out of sight.

  • Butterfly Fact # 64

    The vibrant colors of a butterfly's wings warn predators to stay away. These bright colors signify that the butterfly may taste bitter or may even be poisonous.

  • Butterfly Fact # 3

    Butterflies have no lungs. They breathe through openings on their abdomen called 'spiracles'.

  • Butterfly Fact # 29

    Butterflies use their antennae to feel, smell and hear.

  • Butterfly Fact # 53

    A butterfly's proboscis is almost as long as its entire body.

  • Butterfly Fact # 7

    A group of butterflies is known as a "flutter", "swarm", "rabble" or "kaleidoscope" of butterflies.

  • Butterfly Fact # 13

    Painted Lady butterflies have six legs, though sometimes it looks as though they only have four. Their forelegs are shorter than the others and are tucked up tight against their bodies.

  • Butterfly Fact # 10

    Butterflies are nearsighted but can see many of the same colors that we can - as well as ultraviolet colors that we are unable to see.

  • Butterfly Fact # 8

    Once released, Painted Lady butterflies can live outdoors for as long as an entire year.

  • Butterfly Fact # 27

    Painted Lady caterpillars will shed their exoskeleton five times as they eat and grow.

  • Butterfly Fact # 73

    The largest threat to butterflies is the loss of their habitats. The increase in farming, forestry, land and building development and climate change result in the decline of butterflies and moths.

  • Butterfly Fact # 13

    A caterpillar's first meal is often its own eggshell. The outer shell of the egg is rich in protein and gives them a nutritious boost.

  • Butterfly Fact # 62

    Butterflies produce a special adhesive to "glue" their eggs to host plants.

  • Butterfly Fact # 34

    Painted Lady butterflies inhabit every continent except Australia and Antarctica.

  • Butterfy Fact # 85

    A butterfly cannot fly or eat immediately after emergence. It needs time to prepare itself for life as a butterfly.

  • Butterfly Fact # 1

    Painted Lady butterflies lay their eggs on thistle, malva (or mallow), hollyhock and fiddleneck.

  • Butterfly Fact # 22

    Painted Lady caterpillars spin silk. They use this silk to attach themselves to their host plants. You'll see your caterpillars spinning silk when your Cup of Caterpillars arrives.

  • Butterfly Fact # 101

    One caterpillar has as many as 4,000 muscles in its body - with 248 in its head alone.
