Most of our Butterflies and Insects are farm raised on small local farms located all over the world. This helps to preserve valuable rainforest habitat. It gives local people income, and helps preserve their tropical forests. Another side effect of Butterfly farming has been “Eco-tourism”, which further preserves valuable habitat.
No butterflies or insects used in these displays are endangered species. All are legally imported into the UK. This makes our butterfly displays the perfect environmentally friendly gift for teachers, scientists, private collectors, and anyone who appreciates the amazing beauty and diversity of Butterflies and Insects.
How we do it
1. The butterflies are shipped to us folded up and dried in small envelopes.
2. We then have to place them into a special softening solution for several days so they can be handled without breakage
3. After the Butterflies are soft, they can be handled with tweezers only. Any touch to their wing could cause damage to their colour by removing the fragile colour scales that cover the wings. The Butterflies need to be mounted on boards allowing them to dry in the final position used in our art work.
