Butterfly House

Product Code: 118800

The Invicta Butterfly House provides the ideal conditions for children to view the complete lifecycle of a butterfly. Starting with a trip to gather caterpillars from their local environment, children can discuss habitats and examine the variety of plants where they find their specimens. Identification of the caterpillars then provides a great opportunity to work with keys. Once the caterpillars are inside the House, children can observe them feeding and shedding their skin as they grow, eventually transforming into a chrysalis (or pupa). The Butterfly House is a safe environment for the chrysalis to remain (often overwintering) prior to emerging as a butterfly.The Butterfly House comes complete with a rust resistant frame, a flat top sleeve net with an elasticated toggled hem and a vertical zip access for easy photography. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor use and can be positioned over growing or cut plants. The net is parasite resistant, washable and replaceable.
