BUTTERFLY CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Your butterflies will ship FedEx Priority Overnight to arrive the day before to your release date. In most cities delivers arrive before 10:30 AM Tuesday - Friday or NOON for Saturday deliveries. Your tracking number with your commitment time will be emailed when your butterflies ship. Please be present for your delivery. When your butterflies arrive it is important to change out the ice pack. To keep your butterflies safe and dormant until your release simply remove the top Styrofoam lid and take our ice pack that may be melted out and replace it with a frozen ice pack we ask you to provide. (We send a gel pack that is about 5 x 6 x 1 inch, anything similar is fine). Continue to use the shipping box as a cooler to keep a controlled temperature. The idea is to keep the butterflies naturally dormant until it is time for them to fly!
DO NOT STORE YOUR BUTTERFLIES IN A REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER
Store the Styrofoam insulated shipping box in a room temperature environment after replacing your ice pack. Refreeze our ice pack and change it out about every 12 hours. To Warm and Wake your butterflies the day of the release remove the product they are in from the make shift cooler, away from the ice so they have a chance to warm, wake and get ready for flight. Take them out for about a 1/2 HOUR to ONE HOUR before you plan on releasing them. For a successful release the butterflies need to be released during daylight hours and outdoors in temperatures above 65 degrees. They will not fly at night, in the rain, extreme wind or cold temperatures.
BUTTERFLY GUARANTEE: We cannot guarantee a successful release if you release the butterflies in inclement weather, after sunset or if your release day temperature is below 65 degrees. Due to any unforeseen circumstances, should your butterflies arrive expired, please contact us within 48 hours and return them for credit. We do ship extra butterflies to compensate for any uncommon or potential casualties. It is very rare to have expired butterflies as long as you follow the simple care instructions. Please visit our website QUESTIONS page for more information or call if we can be a service to you. Thank you very much for your butterfly order, enjoy your release.

Every Butterfly was active and flew off
Thank you so much... my wife invited our family over to release them, everyone put some sugar water on their finger and held them for a while!! Every Butterfly was active and flew off, hoping some stay in the yard. This may have been my wife?s favorite anniversary gift in our 36 years... Thank you again!!!

thank you very much for your service
Chad, I wish to thank you very much for your service. The butterfly release was such a very special meaning for my friend's memorial. It was perfect, the weather was perfect and held out until the end of the memorial. After the barbecue, the eulogy, the special music; the family scattered my friend's ashes off their dock on the Wekiva river while Native American flute music was played. During the playing of the flute music, the release of the butterflies occurred...the family dropped red roses into the river and all the friends and neighbors standing along the shore (60 some people) dropped white gardenias into the river. Then around 25 minutes passed and it started to rain and then pour. Everything was wonderful, but the butterflies made it very, very special. Thank you again for your wonderful service. This was well worth the price...it was priceless for it had so much meaning for all attending. I have some good pictures but don't see an attachment to send them. Sincerely, Valerie

It was amazing. Not one casualty
We had a beautiful release in honor of my Mom. A Painted Lady landed on Dad's wedding ring and stayed for a while. It was amazing. Not one casualty, all butterflies survived!! Thank you!

The butterfly release at my wedding was incredible
The butterfly release at my wedding was incredible! At the end of our ceremony, the poem was read and we released a dozen Monarchs from a box. As this was happening, 75 Painted Ladies were passed to the guests in envelopes to release as we walked down the aisle instead of throwing rice. I imagined the butterflies flying quickly away when we opened the box, but instead the monarchs flew into our hands almost as if they were trained to!
