Do you sell the butterflies? We do not sell butterflies directly out of the flight house, but we do have butterflies that can be ordered for special occasion releases.

What happens to the butterflies in the winter time? Many of the butterflies will be released for seasonal migration, some will live out their lives in the greenhouse.
