Pupae Rearing Operations
Costa Rica has an extended network of 400 butterflies farms, distributed in regions with diverse and specific microclimate and vegetation. We visited them, and carefully selected the ones with greater technical skills and love for their pupae. With the help of the butterfly investigatory laboratory of the UCR University, we are working on implementing quality process with the local chrysalis breeders to provide you with the best quality pupae.
Depending on the latitudes where your premises are located, the season, the structures and the living environment where you keep your tropical butterflies, we can help you choose the best species adapted to your needs. They are many subspecies that might be best suited. Feeding habits, prevention of deseases, enclosure, genetic diversity, increase dramatically the lifespan of your butterflies as well as their well-being. Do not hesitate in contacting us for advice.
