When should you order your caterpillars?
Caterpillars and butterflies are creatures that thrive in warmer temperatures. The best time to complete the project is when daytime temperatures are between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If you are in a state that experiences freezing temperatures, it is best to wait until it warms up to complete the project.
- If you are in a state that experiences extreme heat, it is best to wait until temperatures are more mild to complete the project.
- Many of our customers in warm climates like California, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Arizona, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Arkansas, and Texas, can order caterpillars year round.
In many parts of the country, spring and summer are very popular times to raise butterflies!
For the safety and comfort of your baby caterpillars, it is your responsibility to check the weather prior to placing your order. Please check your temperatures and reach out to us if you have any questions.
