Rated 5 out of 5 by from Science and Writing lessons! I love raising butterflies with my class. This is at least my 10th year doing it. This year was especially great because my students had never experienced this type of thing. It was great for science and super for writing! The students worked on a butterfly journal as they observed the changes in their little critter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun with caterpillars Great product! Even better if you grow them in fruit fly tubes. They are larger and more clear so you can seen through better. If you want to slow down their growth, for example you received them on Thursday, but aren’t going to need them until the following Monday or Tuesday, put them in your refrigerator closest to the door over the weekend. You can also tape a string or elastic cord to the container so it can be worn as a necklace.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally good, but maybe a bad batch? We've been ordering these painted lady caterpillars for our science teaching methods class from Carolina for years! Delivery has been right on time (especially important for live specimens) and the caterpillars were always viable. Unfortunately, our last batch was basically a dud. When we received the larvae, at 1/3 to 1/2 were already dead. I've never had this problem before, so was a bit surprised. Not sure if this was a shipping issue (e.g. too cold, too warm, etc.) or something else. The survivors grew as we expected, and were able to transform into butterflies as expected. I will likely go back to Carolina for these in the future, as they remain the best option for such live specimens and their track record is generally good. Just note that sometimes, there may be a 'bad batch'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from butterflies in the classsroom The delivery was quick and on time. I was disappointed about not having enough lids for the cups. I needed to put more than two caterpillars in a cup. Unfortunately, those caterpillars didn't make it to the chrysalis stage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Science project I teach special needs students and this was their first experience. The enjoyed raising thier caterpillars. They were estatic about seeing their caterpillars turn to butterflies. Almost every one of them survived and we have a real butterfly house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I purchased this at the end of the year, and I was unsure if I had enough school days for the growth cycle. I called customer service and they were INCREDIBLY helpful. They knew the answer to all my questions, and I ultimately had just enough time. I ordered the kit that should have had around 30 caterpillars, (it arrived early!) but we received nearly double that!!! I figured we would lose a lot (and that's why we received so many), but pretty much all of them formed cocoons and emerged. My kids loved this. Will be ordering again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful caterpillars I have done these many times in kindergarten but now am using them in my garden club. I received many more caterpillars than i expected which , as wonderful as that is, means I probably do not have enough food for the extras. Hopefully some of the extras will survive to chrysalis. I know that most of the others will survive - great product.
